The default release profile of Maven normally produces an <artifactId>-
sources.jar containing the plain sources and resources. This is a defacto

The <artifactId> and <artifactId>-src.tar.gz are the source 
artifacts we provide in Apache's download area. Each must contain everything 
to build the release. This is what we effectively vote on. Anything else is 
just for convenience of our clients (including the complete stuff in the 
Maven repository).

If we continue to provide our artifacts on Maven central for convenience 
then we should also match the standards. Anything else does not make sense.
