I'm afraid for the dist server you need to go old-skool and use SVN
with your apache.org credentials.


(but note we belong under incubator/juneau )

svn mkdir https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/juneau
should work for anyone in the incubator group

Then you can use

svn co https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/juneau

and add the KEYS file with "svn add" and "svn commit"

Similarly the release candidates you should add at the /dev/ sibling
after making:


When the release has passed, you can just use "svn mv" to move it over
- not having to worry about missing anything or getting the wrong

To simplify such a move, then don't put the files straight into
sources/ and binaries/ split as Commons has done (and which we want to
move away from), but rather use a sub-folders like
juneau-6.0-RC1 (renamed to juneau-6.0 under dist when released).

The incubator folks like all the downloadable files to have the
apache- prefix, e.g.


(You can tweak <finalName> in the assembly config)
