The scp+rsync process also has a staging repository (and using that did
not cause any meta-data issues).

The JARs are the standard Tomcat JARs. The Maven release process just
adds the metadata files and moves the JARs + metadata around. Since the
JARs are already tested as part of the Tomcat release process, we never
had a need to use the staging repository and I don't see that changing.

There is also a snapshot repository and we did use that early on in the
Tomcat 7 development process (before the first release) mainly because
one user who was doing a lot of testing was using Maven and the snapshot
repository was the easiest way to get them the latest build. We stopped
using the snapshot repository some time ago. I can't remember if it was
after the first release or after the first stable release.
