AFAIK, Maven can deal with any arbitrary artifact type as a  
dependency. Whether or not the assembly files make sense as part of  
the Maven repository is another question.

As I say, since Maven bundled the assembly into the repository  
automatically, and we've been trying to do things the "Maven way", I  
didn't see any reason not to utilize that feature.

I had wondered about that. Looking at past incubation release votes  
for other projects (ServiceMIX, at 
mod_mbox/geronimo-servicemix-dev/200609.mbox/% ,  
and ActiveMQ, at 
activemq-dev/200609.mbox/% ), I  
saw that they had both published the release artifacts to the  
incubating repository just like we did for this OpenJPA release, and  
both of those release votes wound up being approved.

Also, if we don't advertise that the files are available in that  
directory, are they considered to be released?

Finally, is this issue going to derail the vote, or are we discussing  
it for future consideration of release mechanics?
