I see the following files (amongst others) in the RC area
http://people.apache.org/~andy/dist-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-RC-4/

KEYS
download/apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating.zip
download//jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating/jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating.jar
source-release/jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating/jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-source-release.zip

Note that the source release is in
  source-release/jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating/
whereas the corresponding binary release is in
  download/
i.e. different depths - and they have different names.

[I'm discounting the jar, since that is Maven-specific and is not
needed on the dist/ mirror site.]

Does not have to be binaries and source (sic), so long as the source
and binary archives are directly related.
They have different names at present, which makes it difficult to tie
them together.

Also, the convention is to have the source and binary archives:
- in the same directory, or
- in parallel directories (binaries/source)

In the case of OS-specific binaries, these could be in folders such as

binaries/plan9
binaries/windows

etc.

In such cases, the binary archives would be one level lower than the
source archive, but that is easy to follow.
