I looked at it and the update site can be placed on the SVN server 
without the jars. The jars are generated by Eclipse whenever you build 
the update site. As long as the structure of the project is intact and 
the site.xml file is there, you should not have a problem. The user can 
build the update site and that will generate the jars.

I have not updated from SVN yet so I don't know the current structure. 
After I update I can tell you more.
