In fact the release and the build of the dist are two different
stages. mvn dist does not exist, I suppose you meant mvn

A release manual is available at this url:
Let me know if you think there is a better way.

So when creating the dist I check out the tag and do a second build.
There might be a way to fetch the jar's from the staging repository
instead of of rebuilding them but I'm not a ware of an easy way to do
this. (the staging repository url changes each time so there is no
easy way to point to it)

I think it is more important to simplify the release process instead
of trying to have these dates equal.
