Maven plugins are not retrieved by Nexus 1.6

Any hint how to solve the following issue is welcome.
I use Maven 2.2.1 with Nexus 1.6.0 as an internal repository manager (configured for central repo as a proxy).
The local Maven settings.xml file contains a mirror config as follows:

Nexus has a Proxy repository configured for Maven central repo with the id "central" (Nexus default settings) and a repository group named "public" with "central" assigned.

Execution of the maven goal
>mvn site
causes an error while Maven is generating the site report:

...
[INFO] Error building POM (may not be this project's POM).

Project ID: org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-javadoc-plugin

Reason: Error getting POM for 'org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-javadoc-plugin' from the repository: Failed to resolve artifact, possibly due to a repository list that is not appropriately equipped for this artifact's metadata.
org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-javadoc-plugin:pom:2.8-SNAPSHOT

from the specified remote repositories:
nexus-local (http://localhost:8080/nexus/content/groups/public)

for project org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-javadoc-plugin


The download of the required dependencies is working as expected. Only the plugins are not retrieved from the internal repository. Any ideas?

Have you read the excellent free online guides for Nexus and Maven by Sonatype? I suspect you'll spot the answer in there (hint: I think it's to do with setting up the pluginRepository correctly)

Sure. And I found what I was looking for. In the Nexus reference book (http://www.sonatype.com/books/nexus-book/reference/), chap. 4.2 gives the answer.
Some more information about plugin Repositories is in the "Maven reference book" (http://www.sonatype.com/books/mvnref-book/reference/public-book.html), chap. 2.9.
Thanks.
