That's fine, so long as the N&L files agree with the contents.

Again that's OK, but the layout of the dist area - and the naming
convention - is very confusing.

There is no direct correspondance between the binary and source archives.
It should be immediately obvious how to find the source and
corresponding binary, but that's not the case at present.

The scripts can all have AL headers; there are some XML files as well
that could have them.
There is one Java file that has no AL header.

No need to autogenerate; just don't store them with the default names or paths.

Perhaps store them under a resources/eclipse directory.
