 From what I have gathered thus far the right way to do this is to user 
the release:rollback roll. This revert the pom version back to what they 
were. It does not seem to remove the tag but I see there is an issue 
filed on that. I think One can then do the respin using release:prepare 
goal which would retag the tree using the previous tag. Finally a respin 
of release:perform goal would re-deploy the artifacts to the server.

I will try this out. Thanks.
