1. Create the distribution binaries by running mvn -Passembly,build-assemblies site install assembly:attached

Before you run the maven assembly command, update the tomcat.version property in assembly/src/main/assembly/bundle-ant.xml to the latest version of Tomcat that works with the version of Pluto you are publishing.

The GPG plugin will ask you for your password, but in this step we don't use the .asc files (the files are signed after they are uploaded to the server).

2. After Maven chugs for a while, the distribution binaries should be built and present in target/assembly/out. Currently (for 1.1.x) a number of distribution binaries are produced:
