For Apache ACE we ended up creating three archives: src, bin and deps. If you download src
only, you need to make sure you collect/build all deps yourself. If you also got the deps
archive, you could just “drop that in” and our “bin” made sure it contained “something
runnable” (but that’s a bit different here since ACE is essentially something you can
run and Zest is really a collection of libraries to use in development.

Greetings, Marcel

sorry that I didnät check this earlier, and I vaguely recall that it has

Should the binary release (and the output of the build of the source  
release) contain (or not) the exact dependencies used to build the system??  

One side of me says; Yes, because that is hard to hunting for if you are  
not a Maven addict.  
And the other says; No, that becomes a too large download, and you still  
don't necesarily get it right since you don't know which jar is needed for  
which library.
