I see a number of issues:
* duplicate jars, we already have some of them in forrest core.
* jars without accompanying licenses.
* jar filenames not following our naming convention.
* compiled classes were committed together with a "build" directory
at plugins/org.apache.forrest.eclipse.servletEngine/build/org/burrokeet/
* bad URL for License in features/org.apache.forrest.eclipse.feature/feature.xml
* Two references to org.burrokeet (in feature.xml and
* bloated distribution.

This commit r202158 added a huge quantity of data.
Our svn checkout was 132816 kb before and 144516 kb after
(an increase of 9%). We already have problems with the size
of the distribution due to all the Cocoon stuff.
