Hi Amelia,

Thanks for your report.

I'm not sure that I understand the problem correctly. Debian has
packaged Maven, but not any of its plugins - so the plugins should be
downloaded normally (i.e. in the same way as a non-Debian Maven
installation). Is this not the case?

When I run "eclipse:eclipse" on my machine it seems to find the plugin

[INFO] Searching repository for plugin with prefix: 'eclipse'.
