dist svn

Not the tarballs, only the "maven artifacts" which I'd extract/build
from the tarballs.  I'd just delay that until after the vote.  Not sure
whether this is viable, and maybe it is just my poor network bandwidth
talking here but the actual act of uploading the artifacts eats up more
than half of the time of creating a RC and I'd like to avoid the wasted
time for RCs who's vote fails.
