subtly different - this is about not resetting on error.
The other is about it happening at all.

> This error may have been because we switched from one shared repository to a separate repository for each project. Not sure. But that's not why I'm creating this issue.
> What happened is that the maven goals for the project changed from what they were to the maven release goals. - release:clean release:prepare release:perform.
> I suspect that the code to revert the goals to what they were needs to be wrapped in a finally block to ensure that regardless of what happens, the goals are reverted to their original state.
> Ironically, the next build actually did a successful release:clean release:prepare release:perform. *edit* the successful release was because the goals were changed. I didn't invoke the release plugin.
