Where is the Nexus Repository 2 OSS war file?

Visit my.sonatype.com for documentation on Nexus Repository version 2.

The .war distribution of Nexus Repository 2 is deprecated and we've removed the download link 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 .war distribution in production and does not support its use. Users should use the jetty bundle instead.  The jetty bundle receives extensive testing via unit, integration, load, and manually run tests every release.
