Each artifact that the PMC publishes must abide by the ASF licensing
policy. That includes

* Source release artifact
* any convenience binary artifacts places on dist.apache
* any convenience jars put into the ASF Nexus repository

That likely means that we bundle much more than just what's in the source tree.

(Though this sounds like we're getting off topic for the 2.7.3 release plan.)
