Subject release:prepare and multi-module projects
Date Tue, 26 Aug 2008 13:18:10 GMT

I've been trying to run release:prepare on a nested project and I keep
running into the same SVN related issues.  Has anyone else got it working?

I can supply the full trace, but the basic problem I get is:

[INFO] Executing: svn --non-interactive copy --file
C:\DOCUME~1\UT159N\LOCALS~1\Temp\maven-scm-1626400052.commit .
[INFO] Working directory: D:\dev\workspace1\installer
[INFO] Unable to tag SCM
Provider message:
The svn tag command failed.
Command output:
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File
already exists

If I repeat that svn command on the comand line it does fail again.  The
file does not exist. But if I do 'svn update' and then repeat it, then it

Also if I manually, do a 'svn copy URL URL' version of tagging, that also

I've been trying to reproduce the problem in raw svn, just doing svn
commands and I can't.  So I guess it must be a maven-release-plugin bug.

So has anyone else got the release plugin to work in multi-module projects
using svn?
