The problem is that neither myself or Arnaud have a lot of capacity to
cut another release.

If I can get an explicit and complete set of instructions to build
whatever is required then I can do it.
If I have to spend any time thinking about it or start the release
process again then it will have to wait until I have spare time.

My preference is to:
* update the pom on trunk to include whatever will build the source
distro (this is different than the "-sources.jar") [Note: I dont
really want to change my pom I want the parent pom release profile to
do it for me instead]
* run the command to generate the distro archive from the tag
* deploy the distro
