Not sure whether May is recent enough :-)

AFAIR there isn't anything difficult.  The major pain point for me is
the sheer number of manual steps - with it comes a big number of
opportunities to make mistakes - and the time it takes.

One detail I just figured out after my third release was that I can
start the gpg-agent before running "mvn deploy" - and I think I've
documented that.  Without that I had to type in my passphrase for every
single artifact.

I prefer the "create the tag manually and avoid the release plugin"
approach but don't think there is a big difference here.
