I have configured 2/3 maven project. Set TFS properly. command line tf works fine. I do the same steps as I would like to release m2 project stored in svn (It works fine btw). Error occured when pom.xml was going to be changed from snapshot to release. This is the point where error occures every time. Console output attached - consoleText_release.txt. If I make mvn release:prepare release:perform -DuseEditMode=true everything is fine. Works great. Jenkins never does checkout but makes always get.
