Well I won't say it's standard Apache practice in my experience. I've made probably over a
dozen releases in about 3+ different Apache projects so far (Nutch, Tika, SIS) and I've always
put out a plain-text version of CHANGES.txt and KEYS alongside the release artifacts. The
advantage of doing so is that I don't have to download a 140 MB file before I can check what
changes are part of the release. 

Also one of the things that Clutch checks in the Incubator is that there is a KEYS file in
the distribution area, separate of the release artifacts. So, I would say it should be there.

Thanks for the pointer. I'd like to see the source and binary tarballs separated. Strictly
speaking, you really only need a source release, but it's up to you guys I think if you want
to provide a binary one too. The advantage is that the source release is likely much smaller
I'm guessing than the binary.

Cheers,
Chris
