I am unsure of what you are discussing... I would have followed these
steps for compress. I have copied this from Apache felix Please advice
if there is something wrong.

1) copy the released artifacts to the dist directory
(/x1/www/ on
2) delete the old release from the dist directory (it's archived)
3) login to with your Apache SVN
credentials. Click on Staging. Find your closed staging repository,
right click on it and choose Promote. Select the Releases repository
from the drop-down list and click Promote.
4) next click on Repositories, select the Releases repository and
validate that your artifacts are all there
5) update the website with site:deploy

Question: I need to copy the artifacts to dist - were can I get them
now, as they are in Nexus?
