Hmm, I don't see how this can be changed when using nexus, the Idea
there is to 'stage' a release and avoid it to be sent to the main
maven repo if it is not 100% correct. So for a 2.0.5 to get in there
we need to release as 2.0.5. And if this release fails I see no other
way than to start over using the same tags (renaming failed tag)
I could rename the tags to rc-1, rc-2 but that would not correspond to
the versions used in the pom's.

How do you suggest we do this?

I'll fix this, I might have a clue on where that blank line comes from.

Hmm, never used those props. Do we really need those? I'd like to see
this automated as we will probably forget about those in the future.

That folder contains some old pre-maven build stuff that I should
still have a look at before deleting it.
Do we really need to copy that over to our distribution file?

Thanks for the review,
Francis
