Subject [DISCUSS] do additional artifacts need to be removed as part of the release process.
Date Mon, 12 May 2008 12:09:39 GMT
This is an issue that came up with the vote on 1.0 Yoko release.  The 
new release process detailed at

generates a bunch of extra artifacts that are .md5 and sha1 signatures 
for the .asc files. So, for every jar file, you will get a .asc file, 
plus additional asc.md5 and asc.sha1 files. 

In our old release process, one of the steps was to erase all of the 
*.asc.* files before staging the release for a vote.  Now that this is 
done automatically by using the plugins, these extra artifacts get 
included, and even get staged to the repos.  For example, see the 
artifacts that got published for the last javamail release, which was 
the most recent release to use this process:

Should our release process include the step to delete these additional 
files?  Or should this be something that should/could be fixed in the 
plugin so that these extraneous files don't get included accidentally?
