No, what I meant was that we'd have some working copy sitting around
on the server somewhere for our m2 repository (and our distributions
directory for that matter).  Then, we would deploy to that working
copy using m2 (which would update the metadata correctly and
everything).  Then, we vote on it.  Then, if everything looks good,
then someone commits it (may need a release management group or
something for this).  Then there would be some process that does an
svn export to a directory that's rsynched to ibiblio.  Again, I'm just
thinking here.  I kind of like the idea of having an SVN copy of our
M2 repo and distributions directories.
