I agree this might be a helpful detail but not a mandatory or necessary one
as it can be deduced from the structure of the project

Well yes and no, what we release is the source code itself, but optionally
and for the convenience of users (developers) who do not want to build the
artifacts from source code on their machines, which can be for what ever
reason, we publish maven artifacts and if they are published they have to
comply to the rules in [1]

I know sometimes checking a release is a PITA process, but someone needs to
do it to get the effort of other Apache Commiters and Members out and to
progress with other stuff, it is a *voluntary team work* effort.

For sure your comments and ideas to enhance, improve and ease the process
of release check, for Onami or any other project in general are more than
welcome, but allow me to say that IMHO it is not helpful to ask an ASF
project team to provide the release in a way that suits every an each IPMC
member to make it easy for them to check
