"Site" Profile for Advanced Maven Site Configuration

Most of production site content takes time to build (for example, JavaDoc API, changes report, etc). It's convenient to move that configuration plugins to a profile, which is activated only once in a while. Profile site does exactly that, grouping together most time-consuming reporting plugins. The profile can be activated only manually from command line, e.g.:

$ mvn clean install site-deploy -Psite

The profile configures maven-site-plugin with all required reporting plugins:

Also site profile has the following plugins:

You can add your own reporting plugins, for example (pay attention to combine.children attribute of reportPlugins element):

<profiles>
  [...]
  <profile>
    <id>site</id>
    <build>
      <plugins>
        <plugin>
          <artifactId>maven-site-plugin</artifactId>
          <configuration>
            <reportPlugins combine.children="append">
              <plugin>
                <artifactId>maven-changes-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>2.8</version>
                <reportSets>
                  <reportSet>
                    <reports>
                      <report>changes-report</report>
                    </reports>
                  </reportSet>
                </reportSets>
              </plugin>
            </reportPlugins>
          </configuration>
        </plugin>
      </plugins>
    </build>
  </profile>
</profiles>

Also you can add your own plugins that should be executed when you're building a production site. Just add them to the site profile.
