no, it is done using the GeoServer REST API, via the gsconfig python library.

The original shapefile is kept in case at some point there is the need
to have the original dataset, as there is always some kind of
(minimal) lost in the import process to the spatial database.

Also, it helps if the upload process for some reasons breaks, this way
the administrator can restore it if needed.
