Hello again,

I would like to note that this activity has been successfully completed
(thanks Anil and the Sonatype folks).

There is one unforeseen side-effect of this: all of our artifacts ever
released (well, at least all the way back to Helium release) are now
available on Maven Central -- i.e.

The immediate upshot of this is that we have javadocs for all artifacts
also available through, for example:


Hello Robert, 

That's because we have forced a complete re-sync of everything in opendaylight-releases, just to make sure the missing release are all available. I believe I've bought it up earlier in the TSC call and also on the IRC discussion.
