This is mainly an internal organization for managing the components
better in JIRA and to more easily maintain separate release cycles.
This also means that jcr-rmi is independently developed & released
from jackrabbit-core and that's why the latest version is 1.5. There
is no 1.6 or 2.0 yet.

The description is still here:
http://jackrabbit.apache.org/jackrabbit-jcr-rmi.html

And the new svn location is now below
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/commons/

In Apache, "commons" means something that was written/started by a
project, but is actually independent from the (core) project itself.
In Jackrabbit's case, all (jcr) commons modules work based on the JCR
API itself and are not tied to the Jackrabbit core implementation. You
can use the JCR RMI client with any JCR-complient repository that
exposes itself over rmi.
