It is kind of a pain. Maven at least performs the GPG signing and  
uploading of the files for you, so that part is somewhat automatic,  
but there is still a bunch of manual steps. They have a "maven- 
release" plugin that does some more of the manual steps, but the last  
time I tried it, it didn't work that well.

Especially since we've all experienced at one time or another the  
results of trying to program after being hit by the proverbial beer
