There is no error in that. The metadata is only for
"orgapachetomcat-078" repository that contains this only release and
nothing else.

I do not know an easy way to find similar current repositories in
other projects. Just searched markmail.org for recent VOTE threads
mentioning repository.apache.org.

Here are two examples
https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/orgapacherave-015/
https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/maven-060/

(from the following threads:
http://markmail.org/thread/qt5pwg3xdxpapyc5
http://markmail.org/thread/jaa3fi4djn6kflic
)

I think that it is not possible to avoid creating them.
I've read on dev@commons that it is possible to delete them (more below).

I think that Maven may need those files just to autocheck integrity of
asc files downloaded from remote servers. So I think it is better to
keep them.


Regarding the procedure to delete those files I just did some search:
Some [1] say that you delete them "before closing staging area".
Others [2] (an older thread but seems more reliable) say that only
after closing it.
