IMO, moving the non-Maven files out of Nexus is the main irritation
with the way it works at present.

AFAIK, wget alone won't do, as the files also have to be deleted.

Also, it would be best if that part of the process could be done from
the users system, rather than having to login to people.a.o and run
commands there.

If that could be automated, I would be happy, but would everyone else?
