is the problem fixed already?
We have the same problem here! It seems that the maven-release-plugin automatically adds the artifactId to the end of an URL during the release:prepare execution, what leads to an error when trying to execute the release:perform goal in the next step!!!
Is there no possibility to deactivate this "function" via any parameter of the release-plugin??
By the way we are using CVS, so if we just leave out the property variable for the module in the original url-definition [scm\:cvs\:pserver\:user@server\:/path/to/cvs/project] instead of [scm\:cvs\:pserver\:user@server\:/path/to/cvs/project\:$
] we get an error that the scm url is invalid!
So the only chance is to add the variable that is replaced by property interpolation, what ends up to the described problem...
