I should clarify.

It's been pointed out to me that empty JARs is probably not serious  
enough to make an exception to the rules. While I'm hesitant to leave  
"junk" in the repository, it should be clear that replacing it is not  
an option because of the confusion that would occur if someone picks  
up the empty JARs from an older mirror.

You should definitely release under a new version. We won't remove  
anything for now, and I think you'd need to make a very strong case  
for it for it to happen.

As Brian pointed out, mvn deploy is the right way to go, and you might  
consider using the release and stage plugins to help manage the  
process and vet the artifacts before they end up in your synced  
repository as well.
