I don't know whether you want to mention the dist/dev tree - that can
be used for staging releases instead of a user's home directory.
The files can then be moved in SVN to the release tree if the vote
succeeds or deleted otherwise.

If the RC vote includes the revision number of the tree, then it gives
traceability from the vote to the release directory.

The Nexus URL already includes a sort of revision number (not unique
over time) which will appear in the RC vote and the Nexus status
change emails.
This should be suffiicently unique to trace back from the repository,
should it ever prove necessary.
