Subject Re: 3.0.1 - next steps

Everyone is going to have different preferences.

Personally, I like to have the src, sometimes the docs, but don't care
to much for any of the rest of it.   And I don't use maven.

I think if our basic source package contains the "extras", then the
binary package can just contain the minimal parts needed to make
Cayenne run.   In my opinion, the best package schemes allow you to
download the binary package, then download the source/docs/examples
package over the top of it.

I wonder how practical it might be to also create a dependencies
package, something that only contains all of the third-party jars
needed to make things work.  That could address some of the concerns
which were mentioned before.   And as a separate package, it wouldn't
inconvenience those who don't need it.

am personally very annoyed with other projects not including the docs for instance.
