I will quote Ryan here: The "artifacts" are the identical .jar files put
into a special directory structure.

Therefore, if we release without maven, the jar files are signed by our
release key. this is authoritative enough, maven does check signatures

I'm not buying the authoritative argument, it seems like any old joker can
take our signed jars and put them in maven themselves, without us having to
do any work.
