In all cases don it may be necessary to use another version of a plugin in order to work around a bug. If you must do so, do not forget to report to us the change you need. If it's good for one project, it could be useful for others.

Each project/module can override a version of a plugin to use a different from one than the one defined in parent. For example to change the version of sonar-packaging-maven-plugin you can use following code snippet:
