Jboss Maven repository (repository.jboss.org) supposed to have three levels of users of staging profiles. Anonymous users had no rights to Nexus staging suite. A JBoss Developer group was supposed be able to deploy artifacts to staging group and a Productization group was supposed to be able to release and promote staging artifacts.
However for some historical reason the last two groups were merged together allowing the developer group to be able to release and promote artifacts as well.
After the server upgrade today, these two groups will be distinguished again. So that means it is possible it may affect your work - it did not matter, if you had been just in the "JBoss Developer" group before, but if so and you need to release or promote staged artifacts, you need to ask me (e-mail to help(at)jboss.org) and your project leader (to confirm your privilege).
