The -bin suffix is controlled by the pom used by the commons:download
plugin to generate the website source file.

The entry <commons.binary.suffix /> means the suffix is suppressed by
the plugin.

The download name is defined by


This could be changed to add the -distribution suffix if it's
difficult to tell Maven not to add it.

It looks as if the Maven install plugin is responsible for adding the
-distribution suffix based on the artifactId from the dist module.

We cannot remove the -distribution suffix from the id as it would then
clash with the core module.

I don't know enough Maven to solve this.

But a work-round would be to accept the -distribution suffix and just
ensure the download page agrees.
That's trivial to do (can even be done manually by editting the xml)
