      Description

      We have the requirement to create a separate branch of one submodule when releasing the entire project. We solved this with the follwoing config in pom.xml of concerned submodule:

      <profile>
        <id>branchSubModule</id>
        <build>
          <plugins>
            <plugin>
              <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
              <artifactId>maven-release-plugin</artifactId>
              <inherited>false</inherited>
              <executions>
                <execution>
                  <id>explorer-branch</id>
                  <inherited>false</inherited>
                  <phase>package</phase>
                  <goals>
                    <goal>branch</goal>
                  </goals>
                  <configuration>
                    <branchName>re${project.version}-submodule</branchName>
                    <developmentVersion>${project.version}</developmentVersion>
                    <updateBranchVersions>true</updateBranchVersions>
                    <releaseVersion>${project.version}-00-SNAPSHOT</releaseVersion>
                  </configuration>
                </execution>
              </executions>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
        </build>
      </profile>
      

      We launch the release build of parent project with:

      mvn release:prepare release:perform -DreleaseProfiles=branchSubModule

      Beside issue adressed by MRELEASE-619, we also face the problem that all submodules are affected when our special submodule gets branched.

      We solved this issue by filtering reactor projects with the current working path.

          I have my doubts about this patch. This implementation won't work for flat multi-modules projects.
          Also, I don't think that nesting the release-plugin (that's what is actually happening here) is a good idea.
          IMO you should use the maven-invoker-plugin to fork a new Maven-call for the branch.
