Subject [jira] Commented: (MRELEASE-458) Branch Does Not Honor updateWorkingCopyVersions Setting
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2010 14:34:55 GMT


Peter Janes commented on MRELEASE-458:

updateWorkingCopyVersions=false appears to work again in the 2.0 release candidate (currently
under vote), although there's a caveat: the POM in the source branch or tag is checked in
twice during the branch, once to change the version to match the branch and once to change
it back.  This means that a (theoretically unchanging) tag is modified, although it's immediately

For what it's worth, the behaviour is the same regardless of the setting of the remoteTagging

Checked on Maven 2.2.1 on Linux with Subversion 1.6.6 using the staged repository and this
command line:

{{mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-release-plugin:2.0:branch -Pstage-release -DbranchName=test-1.0.x
-DupdateBranchVersions=true -DupdateWorkingCopyVersions=false}}

it seems that the working copy is actually being modified now.  Has there been a newer release
or something?
