repository folder which only exists in the binary distro.   

That can be debated. And I've seen both styles used. I'm not sure which style I prefer. Separate
source and binary license files may be more accurate, but they also may be misinterpreted.
I do agree that license/notice in jar files should be source licenses… 

In any event, the current source LICENSE file clearly indicates what applies to source and
binaries. A consumer of the source should be able to easily sort out what applies/doesn't
apply… So, I'm fine with it as is…
