This contains zip and tar.gz binary and source archives, which should
be deleted as they are not useful to Maven.

Where is the source that corresponds to:

download/apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating.zip

It's not easy to find.

And the reverse is just as hard.

Both those layouts are difficult to follow; it's not immediately
obvious how to find the source for some of the binaries.

This is partly because of the directory structure and partly because
the source archive has a different naming convention from the binary
archive.

Some archives are prefixed apache-jena and some just jena.

As already explained, the source and binary archives for each
component should be at the same level.
Either together in a directory, or in parallel source and binary directories.
The latter is especially useful when there are OS-specific binaries.

I would not expect to find any jars in the dist area, only zip and
tar.gz, and if the binary archive has zip and tar.gz formats, so
should the source archive.

The dist area should also not contain maven-only POMs etc; these
should be in the source archive only.

There are a lot of source files without AL headers.
These need to be fixed.
