Is this only my feeling that release plug-in does nothing useful? I mean here that it does
unintelligent editing of your POMs that:

  1. Does not resolve SNAPSHOT versions to correct released versions (but to some random ones)
  2. May result in corrupted POM (e.g. it can remove deployment info).

Is it only me who had a bad experience with this plug-in?

Thanks. I'm sorry that you have to do it manually...
