Subject Re: Project Distribution Process

> When I build a distribution of a project I want Maven to put that newly compiled jar into
a central repository so that other projects can reference to it in project.xml. Would this
newly created jar go into the same repository that holds all my third party jars? If thats
the case then I'd have to create my own central repository and not use the public one?

Correct. It can be file, ftp, ssh or HTTP based for publishing. It
must be HTTP or file based for retrievieng.

You use jar:deploy to do that. The artifact plugin reference contains
the required properties.

information in project.xml is used in the distribution process but thats about it. What can
I do with this? 

It is mostly used for reports such as changelog.

The scm plugin does do a little bit of this, though it focuses on
tagging releases, not branching.

eclipse project files?

Theoretically (ie, it could, but I'm not sure if it does).
