I don't know - didn't find the time to look into that one.

We do have a different policy but we although have talks about
changing it. I guess, the main reason for including stuff in the
NOTICE was that historically, the maven-remote-resource-plugin didn't
work very well for us (nullpointers and other problems for a long
time). The important thing for me is to have a place where we give
credit where credit is due - if it is not he NOTICE we can make it a
different file but we probably should vote on that or something.

Well, it was normal to have .asc.md5/sha files but having
.asc.asc.md5/sha files? Again, not saying this is the fault of this
release but man, this is getting out of hand no?

Well, I like that i can unzip a -project.zip and am able to build the
src inside of it. Having only the sources jars and the pom released
might be enough to match formal requirements but I'd prefer to have
something that builds without me assembling a project dir myself. This
is something that we did override from the apache 7 pom defaults
specifically because of this. Again, we can discuss whether it makes
sense or not but until now our releases created bin and project
