Hi Svein Erik,

The location of the jar files in the distribution looks right 
to me. The lib directory is supposed to hold the product jars, that is, 
the jars which we expect people will typically bundle with their own 
applications. We don't expect that people will bundle our tests with 
their applications, so when we generate a release we put the tests in a 
separate location.
