Maven p22: Run a task at a build lifecycle phase

To execute a plugin, or an Ant task in this case, at a certain time in the build, you can specify a plugin in the build tag, and then an executions tag to specify the phase it should execute:

	  ...
	  <build>
	    <plugins>
	      <plugin>
		<artifactId>maven-antrun-plugin</artifactId>
		<executions>
		  <execution>
		    <id>hellothere</id>
		    <phase>pre-clean</phase>
		    <goals>
		      <goal>run</goal>
		    </goals>
		    <configuration>
		      <tasks name="hallo">
			<echo>Hello, World</echo>
		      </tasks>
		    </configuration>
		  </execution>
		</executions>
	      </plugin>
	    </plugins>
	  </build>
	  ...

This says that the ant plugin should be ran in the 'pre-clean' stage, that the goal in the ant plugin should be run, and the tasks in the configuration says what to do.
