The use of non-plural "download" and "distribution" above confused me --
so to make sure we're all talking apples and apples (not oranges)...

There would be two downloads/distributions types:
     apache-river-<#release number>-incubating-bin.{tar/zip}
     apache-river-<#release number>-incubating-src.{tar/zip}

A resulting overlay of the two downloads would seemingly result
in something that equals the current Starter Kit download.
