I think that Maven's Release plugin is expected to handle all of that in one 

mvn release:prepare
mvn release:perform

However, the latest Release plugin (beta4) has regressed and in my cases 
working less well than the beta3 (which I would recommend).

What is needed is that the POM(s) are properly configured for the Release 
process. At least <distributionManagement>, <scm> and the <configuration>
the release plugin must be correctly specified. Possibly a <repository> as 

I'll give it a go later today and see what is missing and try to figure out 
what should go in there...
