I think yes, maven repository is designed for "quick turnaround" in mind:
as soon something is deployed, should be available to others.
In every case, the artifact should go first, and just then the metadata
(that references the artifact)...
Also interesting to figure out: if upload works in parallel, do we need to
divide this in two: first pom, main artifact and attached artifacts,
second the metadata files. Or is Aether already aware of this?
maven-deploy-plugin 3.0 will use maven-artifact-transfer. Could you make a
JIRA issue just to track this?
