It is probably just a misunderstanding on my side, but it sounds as if you 
would like to release the other components _only_ as downloadable 
binaries. Is this really the case ? If yes, may I ask for the motivation 
behind not wanting to release the sources of the other packages ?

I am aware of the souces being available from svn anyway, but in my 
experience distributing the source code lowers the barrier for users to 
have a look at the source code enormously. As maven is used for the build, 
creating a source distribution should be no large deal (but maybe I'm 
mistaken here).
