[jdom-interest] Maven - Re: question: Publisher of groups 'jdom' and 'org.jdom'

Another update:

The following is the 'issue' open (now resolved) at sonatype.


This issue has now been 'resolved' but not yet 'closed'. What this means
is that sonatype have created a set of 'repositories' in which we can 
deploy JDOM artifacts.

When we have got something to release, and when that something has been
staged, and 'released' in sonatype (and we are happy with the way it will
look), we can then comment on the above 'issue' to that effect. At that
point sonatype will activate the synchronization link to maven-central, and
out changes will be 'pushed' there.

Bottom line is that in my previous mail I listed 10 steps to get the maven
'right', well, steps 1 through 3 are now done....


In their words:

Configuration has been prepared, now you can:
* Deploy snapshot artifacts into repository
* Deploy release artifacts into the staging repository
* Promote staged artifacts into repository 'Releases'
* Download snapshot and release artifacts from group
* Download snapshot, release and staged artifacts from staging group
