To Ignore a Parent’s Plugin

Each child project under a parent pom file can choose to ignore the plugin referenced in the parent’s plugin management section and not implement the plugin declared there.

By not declaring the Munit Plugin in your <plugin> section, you avoid inheriting the plugin declared in pirate-pom:
