Historic tradition; that was before svnpubsub.

Note that the DEV tree at

https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/xyz

is NOT published to www.apache.org/dist

The svnpubsub process takes releases from the RELEASE tree at

https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/xyz

Since they have the same parent, one can use svn move (or svnmucc) to
transfer the files from dev to release area.
This provides traceability (assuming the the release vote includes the
SVN revision number)
