I'm not talking about using the release plugin.

What Nexus does is act as a staging repo for "mvn deploy" - so you can
vote on the actual Maven artifacts, rather than having to pick them
out of your local repo first. If the vote fails, drop them from the
repo, otherwise promote them. Less messing around.

Note that the Commons parent POM currently overrides Nexus.
See:

http://wiki.apache.org/commons/UsingNexus

[I've not yet updated that with the details of how to override the URL.]

If you want to experiment, just use "mvn deploy" with a SNAPSHOT
workspace - that cannot do any harm.
