Subject Bug in the release process: scm location in release pom points to rc
Date Sat, 31 Aug 2013 18:12:52 GMT
There is a "bug" in the release process currently used for UIMA projects.

The practice is to make rc release by
- setting the version to the final version
- changing the svn tag location adding -rcX

The practice to accept a release is
- rename the -rcX tag in svn, removing -rcX

The bug is, that the SCM locations in the release POM are then pointing to the rc SVN location.

What's worse is, that after the release, the accepted rc folder in SVN is renamed, removing
the "-rcX". Consequently, the SVM location in the POM points to nowhere.

Two problems:

- the SCM location should point to a non-RC tag
- the tag pointed to should not be systematically renamed/removed, making the SCM location
basically worthless

Can we do something about this?
