Phil, my "simple script" is the POM. With Nexus, my manual steps are
typically reduced to copying the -src and -bin files out of the
repository (wget's good for that and it copies the whole directory at
one go) and copying these to the dist directory. Honestly, there are
some things remaining like setting the -current links, updating the
README and perhaps the KEYS file and fixing the permissions. But these
are left to do anyways.

What's wrong with that procedure?
