Right, I didn't get it to work automatically, so I deployed the files to 
a local repository and copied them
manually to the incubator repository.
But then an issue comes up, we still want to support the old version 
(uimaj-2.2.0-incubating) that is available in the incubator  repository, 
so the maven-metadata.xml file was not correct. It should look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><metadata>

I updated the files manually so that available UIMA builds still work. 
But this isn't a way we should go in the future.
We have to figure out, how to do this automatically. Another issue is 
the MD5 and SHA1 checksum file for maven-metadata.xml,
these also have to be recreated after the files have been changed. I 
also did this and update the files accordingly.

I verified the uploaded release artifacts successfully. Can please 
anybody else do this.

Thanks Michael
