that may be an option, however I don't know if it'd be the best one.
I think we should create a different assembly descriptor because of NOTICE,
README etc files  which should be taken from the root directory.

The modules artifacts (not only the 'final binary') have for sure to be
deployed on Maven repository, however this binaries and sources packages
are usually deployed to Apache "dist" mirror in order to let people be able
to download them separately (not getting stuff using Maven).

I think the best option is start from where we are now and start producing
RCs in order to adjust them "along the way".
