We want NOTICE/LICENSE in the root so that people who browse the source
see them. Hiding them three directories down does not constitute good
documentation.

As Niall says, src/main/resources/META-INF is only natural for Maven.

But if the entire root directory is defined as a source folder then that
is wrong. What project is doing that? Or are you using something like
MEVENIDE?

I use eclipse and have no problem with any commons project I've worked
on so far, but only use eclipse:eclipse and not any other plugins.

Simon
