We're trying to make things release-able in the vxquery_0_2_staging branch.
So far we're able to produce some source archives using "mvn assembly:assembly" and I've verified
a) the unpacked archives build and run and
b) that building an archive from the archived version again yields an archive with the same
content (the unpacked archives yield the same files, but the archives themselves are not bit-by-bit

So I think that now we need to 
a) make sure that all necessary files are in the archive and that
b) all files that are in the archive are ok and that
c) we sign and upload the archives to a place where they can be reviewed.

Is that correct?

I think that I know how to manually sign and upload these archives. 
But it seems that it would be nicer, if maven did all of this for us. 
Do you agree?
If so, do you know of a project where things are done this way that we could use as an example?
