Dan knows where all the stuff is in the Maven Project POM that has  
all this configured, but I would like to see this go into the ASF POM  
as this would mean that all projects using Maven 2.x at Apache would  
have consistent releases simply by using the release plugin. Many  
problems were found just by Dan trying to use the new release  
toolchain and I imagine every last issue would be found 3 days after  
a couple more projects tried to use the tool chain. Here's a little  
diagram of how the remote resources plugin works. License and notice  
templates effectively become shared resources that have project  
specifics injected into a Velocity context before final rendering:
