Scripts to download and unpack the archives.
Scripts to check sigs and hashes.

WinMerge and
https://svn.apache.org/repos/private/committers/tools/releases/compare_dirs.pl

Eyes ;-)

No, but just have a look at some other projects.
I'm not saying it's the only practice (cf. Apache Wicket), but the
majority of projects have two sets of archives, and it is ASF policy
to vote on the source, not binaries.

Almost all of Commons now use Maven2.

Yes, depending on the licensing of the 3rd party libraries.
These should be added a build time, not added to SVN.
But you should consider whether this will make the archive too large.

You might wish to release 2 binary archives, one just empire-db and
one of dependencies.

E.g. HttpComponents HttpClient does this.

OK, one more point I forgot to mention: the format of the hashes, i.e.

target/dist/apache-empire-db-2.0.5-incubating.tar.gz:
34 81 4D D7 5E EB 49 F1  50 49 64 91 2C 83 04 96

is not the normal format, and does not play well with automated checkers.

The normal format is:

34814DD75EEB49F1504964912C830496 *apache-empire-db-2.0.5-incubating.tar.gz

or possibly just

34814DD75EEB49F1504964912C830496

Likewise for the SHA-1 hash if provided.

This is not a blocker, but please fix if possible.
