Yes they did, but that came after I had created the assembly for logging.

Yes, there are a couple of components that now have src/bin assemblies 
for M2. But if we don't document what should go into them, we'll end up 
in the same spot we are now, when the next build system comes along. 
When I say document, I mean like a web page or similar that is a part of 
the "Commons developers handbook".

There was supposed to come a new predefined assembly in the 2.2 version 
of the assembly-plugin, that looked like it could be used for our source 
distributions. I haven't had time to look into it though. If we could 
use that, then we'd only need to define the binary assembly.
