> While I completely understand why Maven throws an error when {{\-pl/--projects}} defines/contains a non-existing project, I don't really see why the negation of a non-existing project yields the same error, e.g.:
> {noformat}
> c:\_dev\git\gitflow-incremental-builder>mvn -pl !foo
> [INFO] Scanning for projects...
> [ERROR] [ERROR] Could not find the selected project in the reactor: foo @
> [ERROR] Could not find the selected project in the reactor: foo -> [Help 1]
> [ERROR]
> [ERROR] To see the full stack trace of the errors, re-run Maven with the -e switch.
> [ERROR] Re-run Maven using the -X switch to enable full debug logging.
> [ERROR]
> [ERROR] For more information about the errors and possible solutions, please read the following articles:
> [ERROR] [Help 1] http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MAVEN/MavenExecutionException
> {noformat}
> I'd say that at most this should be a warning, not an error.
> This change would come in handy to reuse scripts with certain default options (e.g. quickly build everything without tests, checkstyle, _exclude moduleX_, etc.) on different hierarchy levels of larger multi module project.
