Well, I guess I would need to run [1] for all files or sign them first and
deploy all of them [2] in a big jar, not though what is the exact way but
sure I couldn't be run for nightly builds even though for snapshots only, it
takes too long.

[1] mvn gpg:sign-and-deploy-file -DpomFile= myLib.pom -Dfile=myLib.swc

[2] jar -cvf bundle.jar myLib.pom myLib.pom.asc myLib.swc myLib.swc.asc
myLib-sources.jar myLib-sources.jar.asc

Hi Frederic,

well whenever I do a Flexmojos Release, I have to deploy quite a lot of
files. That was never really a problem.
I guess it should be possible to stage all the fdk files using the deployer
after all it's nothing than an ordinary maven deploy. All that's different
to an ordinary deply is that you have to deploy to a staging repo which you
can test and as soon as all is good, you hit the "Go" button and the stuff
is publically available at the Sonatype OSS repo and after some time
artifacts are synced to Mavan Central.

Chris, I just had a look at the deployment process requires by Sonatype,
something I did 2 years ago, so, I didn't remembered well, it was heavy and
it was only one Flex Lib built by Maven.

How do you think we can deploy our not Maven built SDK artifacts in the
Sonatype way ? can it accept a compress file as a bundle of all signed
artifacts or something else ?

But if the deal Velo and Sonatype had with Adobe was enough, I guess this
would be all we need and we wouldn't have the hassle of having to implement
any sort of manual deployment wrapper as I would really hate having to
implement any sort if "interactive" maven build.

We did not pursue that approach because Apache supposedly only distributes
source code with open licenses.  Even if there was such an agreement, the
binary packages still could not contain Adobe stuff because a binary package
can only contain the compiled results of a source package.

I may still set up a simple "business" to distribute the same package as
Adobe 4.6 but a license acceptance will still be required which AFAIK still
poses a problem for Maven.

Maybe we should add some license handling to Maven itself?
