Two things:
- commons-foo-1.0.jar - the binary jar
- The entire svn tree for the project

I include the binary jar file in the source distribution as I want to 
ensure that the maximum number of people possible get the genuine binary 
jar as created by us and no-one else (eg. minimises JDK1.3 vs JDK1.6 issues)

Three things:
- commons-foo-1.0.jar - the binary jar
- - the source code
- The javadoc

I include the source zip in the binary distribution as I think most 
people want to attach the source to their jar files, at least in commons.
