      Many release process (ex: geronimo) require the release candidate to be exposed in a staging repository for testing, then vote from the communiity, and finally copy the artifact in the public repository / web site. This requires to run the release:perform with the final version (not a "-rc*" one).

      When the vote fails, the release manager has to rollback the project to the previous SNAPSHOT version. As release:perform removes all the release-related files (including pom backups) the release:rollback goal cannot be used for this.

      Geronimo solution is to copy the trunk as a "savepoint" before staging a release. A far better option would be to have a dedicated goal for this "release:stage" :

      • same features as release:perform
      • don't remove and backups
      • requires a stagingRepository parameter, to be passed as -DaltRepoLocation to the deploy plugin
      • detect the site:deploy goal and replace it with site:stage-deploy
