Hey Andrew,

I have checked in a fix (DERBY-1886) which removes junit.jar from the 
source distributions. I'd rather not spin a new release candidate. 
Instead, I was hoping that the following would be adequate:

1) Hand-remove junit.jar from the source distributions for

2) Re-sign those distributions.

Does this sound adequate?
