Not in the maven-release-plugin chapter. And with reason. The problem of
the later copy would be, that the tagged pom.xml contains the pathes to
the tag created originally (read: with the RC suffix) so that if you
checkout the copied tag (read: the release version), the settings in
pom.xml will still point to the RC tag.

Therefore, with a Maven build you should always create the release
version, tag it, vote on it and let it be. If the vote fails, the tag
can as well be removed. What's the point of keeping it around? The vote
failed, after all. The tag is invalid anyway.

BTW, using the SVN revisions given in the vote mail (this is why they
are important), you can always access the failed RC tag, ok?

Bye, Thomas
