The jars are not generally needed for dist/

Are these the same as the distribution archives above?

>    `-- jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating

What's the point of the subdirectory?

Name does not agree with binary archives

I still find it very confusing.
e.g. where is the source file for jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-distribution.tar.gz?

Why is there a download directory and a binaries directory?

See my mockups at:

http://people.apache.org/~sebb/dist-tdb-proto/

one - parallel binaries/ and source/
two - single directory named after the release.

The latter is likely to be easier to manage when moving to svnpubsub.

$ ls -1R

./one:
KEYS
binaries
source

./one/binaries:
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-distribution.tar.gz
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-distribution.zip

./one/source:
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-source-release.zip

./two:
KEYS
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating

./two/apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating:
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-distribution.tar.gz
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-distribution.zip
apache-jena-tdb-0.9.0-incubating-source-release.zip
