Building Steps (Struts Annotations)

Obtain a fresh check out of struts annotations

svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/struts/maven/trunk/struts-annotations struts-annotations

Prepare release

mvn release:prepare -Dusername=yourSvnUsername -Dpassword=yourSvnPassword

Accept the suggested tag name

For some reason, when using svn client 1.5, the release plugin might fail to tag the release, if it fails, run:
svn up -r head
mvn release:prepare -Dresume

Perform release

mvn release:perform -Dusername=yourSvnUsername

Log in to Nexus and close the staging repository.

Send a VOTE email

A sample template is at Sample announcements page (and DO wait for the 72 hours period)

Promote release

If the Vote passed log in again to Nexus and promote the repository - it will be automatically synced with Maven Central Repository.
