> thank you for your explanations, but as it turned out the problem is fixed simply by
using version 2.4.2 of the release plugin. I wonder why someone fixed it but didn't close
 https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MRELEASE-837...!

MG>maven-release-plugin is one of most frequently used plugins used from maven
MG>there are at least 1000+ installations out there still using the 2.1.x maven-release-plugin
MG>1000 installations out there still using 2.2.x maven-release-plugin
MG>slightly less than 1000 installations out there using 2.3.x maven-release-management
MG>many of these installations are "secure" and disallow "autoUpdate" from http URLs for
plugins
MG>Why? ...change ${maven.plugin.version} to 2.4.2 and watch the fireworks!
MG>the justification for breaking thru firewall instead of using own nexus repository is
tenuous
MG>but ..secure sites will allow 'point patches'

MG>3 items need to be completed:
MG>1)fix the doc to say in 2.4.2 "parent version will be updated from development-version"
MG>This will get the legalities of "What we Say" and "What we Do" in sync...
MG>2)backport the 2.4.2 patch to previous 2.1.x, 2.2.x, 2.3.x point patches specifically:
MG>2a) backport 2.4.2 fix to patch 2.1.x and run testcases

MG>2b) backport 2.4.2 fix to patch 2.2.x and run testcases

MG>2c) backport 2.4.2 fix to patch 2.3.x and run testcases
MG>3)once the patch is in place and accepted by all ...close 837!

MG>Process violation was the culprit here ..(Agile Project Champions and Stakeholders have
been alerted!)
