OK, that's fine as well.

Personally I'd just go for a packaged svn export as the source release
and the normal Maven build artifact (tika-0.2.jar) as the binary
artifact. This way the source we release would be the bits that we
have worked on and tagged in SVN instead of a build artifact, however
similar those may be in practice.

See [1] for my message on this from last year. More generally you may
want to review the threads [2] and [3] that discuss the 0.1 release.

No, that would be /www/www.apache.org/dist/lucene/tika (I just created
the directory).

The m2-ibiblio-rsync-repository is a way for us to publish release
artifacts to the central Maven repository. There are a few ways to
handle publishing of Maven release artifacts; one way is to "mvn
deploy" the release candidate to an empty staging repository for
review during the release vote. Once the vote has passed, the staged
artifacts can then be copied to
/www/people.apache.org/repo/m2-ibiblio-rsync-repository on
people.apache.org, from where they will be automatically synced to the
central Maven repository.

See [4] and [5] for more background.
