[INFO] Tagging release with the label v1.8.0...
[INFO] Executing: /bin/sh -c cd /Users/terraframe/Documents/workspace/Runway-SDK && git tag -F /var/folders/tY/tY5PnSNPED0Yr7FtapST2++++TI/-Tmp-/maven-scm-864030210.commit v1.8.0

[ERROR] Provider message:

[ERROR] fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

git push ssh://git@github.com/terraframe v1.8.0

I think you're hitting https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SCM-709. As a workaround, you could use version 2.3.2 of the maven-release-plugin
