However, many projects refer to SCM repos on "public" pages, some even
on the download page.
Also, projects that use Maven will have the SCM URLs in the POM.
Maven generated sites will have the Source Repo as part of the
standard documentation.
Such projects should ensure that the SCM has appropriate N&L files at
the top level.

Note also that Roy [1] at least considers that SCM should be classed
as a distribution.
