I'll go further: that should be the only download.  We should avoid 
having a bunch of different downloads.  Ant used to require you to 
separately download the optional tasks, but that was a pain.  Now 
they're included.

So we will have at least:

   lucene-XX.tar.gz
   lucene-src-XX.tar.gz

But should we add the following?

   lucene-contrib-XX.tar.gz
   lucene-contrib-src-XX.tar.gz

Or should we just bundle these into the first two?  I vote for bundling. 
  There will still be separate jar files, so folks only have to deploy 
what they need.  Download size is not an issue these days.  Thoughts?

Also, we should combine the javadoc into a single tree, with a "Core" 
group followed by a "Contrib" group:

http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/tooldocs/solaris/javadoc.html#group

As an example, Nutch does this for "Core" and "Plugin":
