This creates a tag here: https://gitbox.apache.org/repos/asf?p=directory-project.git
This deploys the POM to a staging repository. Go to https://repository.apache.org/index.html#stagingRepositories and close the staging repository.
Inform the dev list to publish (release) this POM. After a 4 hour grace period the POM can be released, therefore go to https://repository.apache.org/index.html#stagingRepositories and release the staging repository.
