      Description

      When release:prepare is invoked, on a cygwin system using svn provided with cygwin, the following error occurs.

      [INFO] Checking in modified POMs...
      [INFO] Executing: svn --non-interactive commit --file E:\DOCUME~1\CGRUBE~1.DJI\LOCALS~1\Temp\maven-scm-1141263545.commit E:/projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4/pom.xml
      [INFO] Working directory: E:\projects\israfil-fw\net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4
      [INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      [ERROR] BUILD FAILURE
      [INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      [INFO] Unable to commit files
      Provider message:
      The svn command failed.
      Command output:
      svn: '/projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4/E:/projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4' is not a working copy
      ...
      SVN on cygwin interprets E:/projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4/pom.xml to be /projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4/E:/projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4, essentially appending the absolute path on the current working driectory as if it were a relative path.

      This is very odd, since "svn <command> E:/projects/israfil-fw/net.israfil.foundation-JDK1.4" works like a charm. I tried it with E: and e: to no avail.

      Proposed solution: Use relative paths
      Alternative - really really bad alternative: detect the presence of cygwin and re-structure the file path to use /cygdrive/e/blah/blah format.
      Ultimate remedy: Figure out why SVN is interpreting this way and fix in svn.

      -Christian.
