I think there are some problems with the archives.

The *java* archive contains a .war file which has 42 jars in the
WEB-INF/lib directory.

Some 17 or so of these are ASF files, but the rest are 3rd party files.
None of the 3rd party files are mentioned in the META-INF NOTICE and
LICENSE files.
Yes, there is a DEPENDENCIES file, but AFAIK, that information should
be in the N & L files.  The NOTICE file does not mention the crypto

There is a COPYING file in the java archive top-level directory which
is just a copy of AL 2.0; it could be deleted. I'm not sure the
COMMITTERS file belongs in archives.

The *php* archive also has the COPYING and COMMITTERS files. The
NOTICE file says 2008.
Not sure the .htaccess file belongs in it.

Test files are not normally included in binary archives; they are
usually only present in the source archive. This is where having
separate source and binary archives even for interpreted code would
help. Also the source archive should contain files such as pom.xml
which are only needed for building the binary archive.
