Tried to build another project with more modules and the issue still exists for it.

>                 Key: MRELEASE-271
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Release Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-beta-4, 2.0-beta-6
>         Environment: XP
>            Reporter: David Hoffer
>         Attachments:, SuccessfulReleaseBuild.txt
> We have a multi-module maven project that has recently started failing in the release:perform
> We have just added a couple more modules but do not know if that is the cause of the
failure.  It seems that the release:perform fails to compile the source after the SCM tag
and checkout.  The failure says that it cannot find a dependent jar but it is that jar that
it is supposed to be building and releasing!  I updated to use the latest 2.0-beta-6 release
plugin version but this did not help. 
> Upon receiving feedback in the maven users group that others have seen this behavior
I followed their advise and added <configuration> <preparationGoals>clean install</preparationGoals></configuration>
to my parent pom which did fix the problem.
> Why is the release goal failing now?  When do I and when do I not need these changes
to my pom?  I will attach pom and build logs in hopes this can be fixed soon, let me know
if you need additional information.
