|If you get hung up during release:perform because Maven can't verify the authenticity of a host, then there could be one of two |
different problems. The first problem, which is an easy fix, is to go to the command line and use SSH to log in to that host. You
should receive a prompt to add the host to your known_hosts file. If you add the host to your known_hosts file from the command line
SSH, then you should be able to try release:perform again and have more success. There is a chance though that this won't fix maven.
Maven doesn't appear to understand hashed known_hosts files. There is some information here - known_hosts file Hashing.
Create a settings.xml under ~/.m2 and follow below instructions:
To complete a full build and all the tests, it may be neccesary to increase the amount of memory available to Maven. The simplest thing is to set an environment variable.
If a tagged build needs to be retagged, be sure to delete the old tag first.
If the commit was fine, but the log was wrong, updating the log entry is easy. For example,
See svn help propset for more.
