  It's a fair question -- if you want people to be able to sync
dependencies from Maven directly into their projects via pom.xml
references, then the Maven repository is the way to go.

  If you want to distribute a single package that contains everything
(binaries, docs, samples, etc) needed to get started with OpenJPA and
doesn't require the user to use the Maven project model, then the
source / binary zip archives are the way to go.

  Personally, I think both are valuable as they serve different needs
for different development environments.
