As a matter of fact, after a bit more analysis on this issue (getting
forced builds only), it seems that Archiva is the sole culprit for the
corruption, and it doesn't seem linked to concurrency between continuum
deploys and Archiva metadata "fixing", but more like Archiva is
corrupting the metadata all by itself.

And in all cases that I have seen so far, this happens after the first
snapshot build that follows a release... The metadata file that gets
corrupted is the one that sits next to the "version" folders, not the
one next to the .pom and .jar files.

It is hard to give more info as the issue happens randomly, but
definitely too often for it to be a mere concurrency issue. Or maybe
concurrency between 2 different consumers within Archiva.

Thanks for your insights.
