Of course it makes sense for it to be updatable to reflect that things change, servers get
moved, ant targets get improved, but your message, on the heels of the Maven discussion, was
interpreted by me (and please correct me if I'm wrong) to presume that you are saying that
it is alright for the RM to decide what artifacts should be released.  So, if that's not the
case, then fine, I agree, but if it is, then no, I don't think this is the right message to
put on the page.  And it certainly isn't up to you alone to decide by placing it on the Wiki
as a "trivial" update.
