      Description

      The nexus-staging-maven-plugin has replaced the old nexus-maven-plugin. But googling for "nexus-staging-maven-plugin site" and similar does not turn up a Maven web site (i.e., the output of maven-site-plugin) with documentation on the plugin. And worse, that search yields the old nexus-maven-plugin site at:

      https://repository.sonatype.org/content/sites/maven-sites/nexus-maven-plugin/

      Unfortunately, that site does not have a deprecation notice. It is easy to miss that that plugin is obsolete, replaced by nexus-staging-maven-plugin.

      And because the names are so similar, it is also easy to miss that that site is not, in fact, the nexus-staging-maven-plugin documentation. So one might start attempting to use the configuration flags given on that site, only to find that things do not work out as expected.

      It would be great if:

      A) The nexus-staging-maven-plugin site could be published and linked somewhere.
      B) The nexus-maven-plugin site could be either redirected to the nexus-staging-maven-plugin site, or at least updated with a prominent deprecation notice and link to the nexus-staging-maven-plugin documentation.

      Thank you for your hard work on this very useful plugin!
