Subject Re: Maven 3.0.4 and maven-release-plugin 2.3.2
Date Fri, 09 Nov 2012 20:27:21 GMT
I don't have the in-depth knowledge of the release-plugin, but I think that
the problem might be that you don't have an aggregate build. So the
dependency to commons in bizcore is actually referencing a SNAPSHOT version
(the value of project.version). I would even go as far as if you don't have
a multi-module build (an aggregating build), using the current project
version number in the GAV of a dependency is weird.
