AIUI, Nexus offers a staging facility, which Archiva does not (or did
not at the time - maybe it does now).

i.e. it allows the artifacts to be uploaded to a public location,
which can be used for the release vote.

If the vote succeeds, publish the staged repo; if it fails, drop it.

There's no danger of accidentally releasing Maven artifacts that have
not been voted on (as happened in Commons about a year ago before that
component used Nexus).
