shipping the pom.xml file as part of the source distribution for future releases.

Yeah, again, that is just a configuration we have to set so that it
not only generates the -sources.jar but also the -project.{zip,tar.gz}
just like we do at felix. Without that (and there I totally agree with
ant and sebb on this one), it sucks rocks as you have to massage the
stuff quite a bit to get it to work and don't even have the tests,
etc. :-(.

I think having the -projects plus the two scripts are a good way to go
(technically, its close to releasing the reactor pom - which would be
even easier -  but this way, we don't have to tag the trunk). The
script will be simple, just unzip all -projects,cd into each, mvn
clean install, cd out again. That plus the correct list of artifacts
we can give in the vote mail is all that is needed inside the script.

Karl
