If someone wants to pursue this, then they will need to
raise the issue on infrastructure@ mailing list.

Remember that it is an Apache-wide thing, not just Cocoon.

I searched a local archive of infrastructure@ and could not
find any reason (though i may have deleted it). I did find
an important message from Pier:
 Subject: mirroring, web pages, and disk space
 Date: 27 Oct 2002
which sets out "ASF Distribution and Archive Guidelines".
It definitely said both *.tar.gz and *.zip for snapshots.
I don't know what happened to that document - it did not
end up in the "infrastructure" CVS module.

Committers, you can ssh to to look for yourself.
I found reference to a script called "taritup" in the
"apmail" home directory.

By the way, i think that we need more explanation about our
(good) decision to go with source-only dist. I tweaked the
README for the dist/cocoon/ directory and linked to the
Wiki page "LatestRelease" (which also needs tweaking).
