What will Maven do?

As much as Maven makes it easy to deal with builds, the plethora of XML and the varying life cycles phases can sometimes make it hard to figure out what a build will actually do.

To help with this, I'm happy to make available the Eclipse plugin called the "Maven Inspector". This plugin provides a simple View called "Maven Execution" that presents for a given POM file the phases and associated MOJOs.
