      Description

      The release plugin should check scm:url against the output of svn info. If they don't match, it should fail with an error.

      We had a situation where the pom file in a branch was screwed up during a merge, such that scm:url was incorrect. In our case, it pointed to the trunk instead of the branch.

      This caused release:prepare to silently do the wrong thing. It would still do the normal edit/commit in the working copy of the branch, but then it would do the copy using the scm:url. In our case, this meant that the tag was copied from the trunk instead of the branch.

      In fact, release:perform also completed successfully; our only indication that there was a problem was the version number of the released artifacts.

      We cannot set remotetagging=false due to the Subversion bug trying to copy with svn > 1.5.
