OK, my suggestion:

1) Add a dependency for the 1.9.2 maven-xdoc-plugin to the commons-build's
2) Add a commons-site-xdoc-1.8.jsl to commons-build that reflects
commons-site.jsl before you made your change - i.e. doesn't require the
1.9.2 maven-xdoc-plugin.
3) Post an [all] message to this list that explains the issue and telling
projects they have a choice of three solutions a) extends
commons-build/project.xml or b) add a plugin dependency to their project.xml
or c) change their to point to commons-site-xdoc-1.8.jsl.
Then its down to individual projects which way they want to jump.
