Sorry, I misunderstood your question. You're right, this is currently a limitation. So there
are few feature requests here:
- Generate a POM on adding a project, just for that project
- Ability to generate a POM for just a project, not the whole solution
- Re-generating POMs for a solution should be able sync them, not overwrite them (somewhat
related: NPANDAY-168)

If one or more of those interests you, you can file them in JIRA:
