What Anders tells you in a lot of word is: Your last sentence does not make 
sense in Maven terminology. The local repository is on your home directory 
and you will *never* deploy something there, "deploy" means always a remote 
repository. See docs for similar goals:

- install:install-file - will add artifact manually to local repo
- deploy:deploy-file - will add artifact manually to remote repo

And yes, a jar that contains only the sources (must have proper layout 
though) can be installed as an artifact with classifier "sources" (that's 
what the maven-sources-plugin does) and you can do this manually with one of 
the goals above - depending on your target.
