>                 Key: MRELEASE-387
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Release Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: branch
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-8
>         Environment: maven 2.0.9 and 2.1.0 M1, maven release plugin 2.0-beta-8
>            Reporter: Jeff Vogelsang

>         Attachments: addSupportForVersion.patch
> I have tried all the various permutations for passing versions to the command line while
making a branch. The plugin ignores my parameters when running release:branch. It either interactively
prompts for new versions, or injects the defaults if I pass parameters in batch mode.
> Here's an example of two commands I have tried running that don't work:
> mvn release:branch -DbranchName=RB-[top-level-project-name]-1.0.4 -DautoVersionSubmodules=true
-DupdateBranchVersions=true -DupdateWorkingCopyVersions=false -DdevelopmentVersion=1.0.4-SNAPSHOT
> mvn release:branch -DbranchName=RB-[top-level-project-name]-1.0.4 -DautoVersionSubmodules=true
-DupdateBranchVersions=true -DupdateWorkingCopyVersions=false[org package].[top-level-project-name]=1.0.4-SNAPSHOT
> Both of those commands prompt me for versions and no matter what parameters I type use
the current project revision as the default. If I do batch mode with --batch or -B, the release
plugin just injects the current project revision into the branch and ignores my parameters.
