Subject Re: [HELP] Unable to commit files with Maven release plugin
Date Sat, 20 Feb 2010 08:45:16 GMT
I don't really understand how the svn client does security but I had  
to manually log in to svn a couple times with my new password before  
it stuck and I could do a commit without logging in to svn.  Have you  
tried a plain commit, not through the release plugin?
