[Commented] (MNG-6808) Need ability to remove inherited plugin configuration

Robert Scholte commented on MNG-6808:

The attributes are not at random, but are from a specification (which I cannot find, but I think it is part of http://www.xmlpull.org/index.shtml ). Assuming the specs are about merging, I doubt it has a solution for removal of elements.
I would suggest to solve this in the parent first.

> There are cases where plugin configuration inherited from parent contains elements that you want removed rather than overridden.
> For example when developing Hippo CMS projects you are required to inherit their parent pom which provides among other things a Cargo configuration with <zipUrlInstaller>.
> If you would like to provide instead an <artifactInstaller> you need to remove <zipUrlInstaller> as they are mutually exclusive and build will fail if you don't.
> Unfortunately at the moment your only option is to replace entire configuration with {{<configuration combine.self="override">}} and copy a lot of configuration.
> It would be great if I could remove inherited element instead with something like:
> {code:java}
> <zipUrlInstaller combine.self="remove">{code}
