Maven Release Plugin and Git 1.9

Ran into this issue today and wasted a good hour on figuring out what happened. Seems to be an issue with Git 1.9.x.


Maven release plugin successfully completes the release:prepare goal, creates the tag, but fails to commit the changed pom.xml.


Git’s output format changed slightly in one of the recent versions and Maven’s SCM provider expects output in a certain way. Luckily you can force git to use the old output style:

	git config --add status.displayCommentPrefix true

As per SCM-740
