Since tomcat has a download target - I am particularly interested by the 
jars that are used by tomcat. We currently get the .tar.gz and expand it - 
but it would be faster to just get what we need. 

If this happens for other releases - that would be great.

Yes for the first, that's where all files ( and binaries like .jars) 
should be distributed.

For the second - I have no idea :-), and I don't want to get into 
any discussion about "repository". We do have a dist/ directory that 
is mirrored and I think we all agree that's where the releases should be 
placed. It does have some clear rules - including the binary/ directory.
And the .jars are clearly binaries. :-) 

BTW, my understanding is that some symlinks are required to the "-current"
version. I would really appreciate if for the .jars we would use the
name of the jar without -current. ( for the symlink - the filename needs 
to have the version). This will allow download with the full name or 
the latest release - but avoid the need to rename in the second case.
