That is correct, but it would be a good idea to have one. A JIRA entry
for creating a top-level and/or docs-level index.html should be filed.

The only problem I found with the contents is that tools/release was
not included in the -src distribution, but that's a minor nit and not
a showstopper, in my opinion. I didn't scan every single directory in
the -src distribution, but the high-level view looks good.

Thumbs up.

Looks good.

I'll move packaging.properties to a different filename
(packaging.tmpl, i suppose, to indicate its a template) and add a note
about copying the file to packaging.properties and modifying it to
contain proper values for your system.

Yes, this is important. Thanks for thinking of that.

<snip problems with signing>

That's unfortunate the the signing bit was pretty much a wash, since
it worked for me. I'll include an example for signing the whole thing
with a (non-Ant) script.

Sure, I'll move this up the list.
