JDO is a sub-project of db, infra would like to have "all or nothing" for svnpubsub.

release directory which is automatically mirrored worldwide. The downloads page that chooses
a mirror will continue to work exactly as before. There are no other changes to release artifact

simply needs to be svn rm'd. The change will automatically propagate to mirrors.
