The last (and only) release was 0.8, as far as I can tell.

There is no KEYS file in,
and there does not appear to be a full source archive of the project
The download page does not have a link to any source archives as far
as I can tell.
It does link to KEYS in SVN, but almost all other ASF projects have a
copy of KEYS in the appropriate /dist directory.

Normally releases are divided into binaries/ and source/ directories,
with a KEYS file in the top-level, i.e.

- binaries/ace
- sources/

Most of the files in the /dist/incubator/ace directory appear to be
Maven artifacts; normally these are not stored in /dist but only in
the Maven repo.
Indeed most of the files are also in Maven Central. The only non-Maven
files appear to be

neither of which contains the source.

I would expect the above zips to be in


with corresponding source files in


The SVN layout [1] is also a bit unusual.
There is no tags/ directory for release tags, although there is a
releases/ directory containing individual entries for each release for
each component.
This is likely to become unmanageable very quickly, if every release
adds another 63 directory entries under releases/
