The patch was probably aiming for something like the upload artifact so it
was put in the navigation menu. I agree it makes more sense to put the
delete in the artifact info page. My only concern is if we're going to put
it there, how would we know from which repository do we delete the artifact
from if the artifact resides in multiple repositories?
(I'm answering my own question hehe.. I guess we can either delete them in
all the repositories OR we could provide a list of the repositories where
the artifact resides so the users can choose where they want to delete the
artifact from?)

Yep, all related artifacts are deleted. The cleanup consumers are also
executed after the delete so the database & index also gets cleaned up :)

No, currently the delete artifact deletes the whole version directory.
