Subject Re: Plugin executions vs. POM inheritance

I am still curious, though, what Stephen meant by his reply to Lóránt's 
original question. From what I could gather, Lóránt is in a situation 
similar to myself, but <inherited>false</inherited> doesn't work for me 
at all.

What am I missing? (Neither the POM Reference nor the "Guide to 
Configuring Plug-ins" were of any help here.)

Best wishes,
