Where is the Nexus OSS war file?

The war distribution of Nexus is deprecated and  we've removed the Nexus war download link from the main download page to discourage its use. It was originally built as a service to the OSS community, but it receives only basic sanity testing at Sonatype, and we do not devote any significant development resources to it. 

Sonatype does not recommend using a Nexus war distribution in production, and does not support its use. Users should use the Nexus jetty bundle instead.  The jetty bundle receives extensive testing via unit, integration, load, and manually run tests every release.
