I know next to nothing about managing a zone.

svn works with one minor snag. The upload for javaee6 took a few
minutes. The problem is the download speed. at ~30kB/sec it will take a
number of hours to download the same files.

The other TCKs are all much smaller so should not be an issue.

While the download time may look prohibitive, if you compare it to the
time it takes between writing an e-mail to this list and one of us
having a chance to copy the file across, a small number of hours isn't
that bad. And for the smaller TCKs it is a no-brainer.

I'm leaning towards continuing with svn at this point. That would require:
- downloading and adding all the other TCKs under [1]
- adding a jcp-nda group to svn
- granting jcp-nda read access to [1]
- populating jcp-nda with everyone who has signed the JCP nda

If the download time for the Java EE TCKs is an issue, we still have the
option of placing a copy diretcly in someone'e homedir on people.
