I deleted one reference to a sample source zip file in the wiki 
(ldap-sample-app) and then thought I should check into this a little 
more. :-)   I spoke with Hernan and he indicated that we should have the 
zip files so that a user can download the source without having to 
install SVN.  I can see the value in this but it is difficult to maintain.

One option would be to create a zip per sample in the maven build and 
release them as additional artifacts along with the sample plugins, 
jars, ears, wars, etc...  We could then reference the mirror locations 
of these zip files in the wiki pages.

One other thing ... the zip file for the ldap sample seemed to contain 
more than just the source - it also included docs, javadoc, even copies 
of the wiki content.  The jms-mdb-sample has similar contents.  Does 
anybody know how/why all of this is included in the zip and if it is
