missing -source.jar bundles in maven repository for many apache commons

                 Key: COMMONSSITE-24
             Project: Commons All
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Commons Build
            Reporter: nicolas de loof
            Priority: Minor

Following discution on dev list, 

Many commons-* artifacts in maven "central" repository have no  -sources.jar bundle, that
is VERY usefull for developers as Maven download them and attch to project classpath for debugging.

Those jars can be created from existing source distribution available at
Curt Arnold has created an Ant script to download them and re-package as -source.jars, and
including the required legal files (LICENSE & NOTICE).

The only issue is for old releases that used Apache license 1.1. Depending if you consider
repackaging source distribution to be a NEW release, it MUST follow ASL 2.0 conventions (NOTICE
& LICENSE file, source files HEADER ...) so requires some changes on sources and become
useless for debugging purpose (as line numbers will not match !)
