I typically do something like this:

    $ TAG=jackrabbit-jcr-commons-1.4.1
    $ JAR=$TAG-src.jar
    $ svn export http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/tags/$TAG
    $ jar cMf $JAR $TAG
    $ openssl md5 < $JAR > $JAR.md5
    $ openssl sha1 < $JAR > $JAR.sha
    $ gpg --armor --output $JAR.asc --detach-sig $JAR

Agreed, it's not very streamlined, though I do have it scripted to a
large degree.

PS. As for why we need the -src jar; as an open _source_ project our
releases should (some say must) be in source form. We can provide
pre-compiled binaries and things like the Maven -sources jars as a
convenience to users, but the primary content of the release should be
the sources from which those convenience packages were built.
