I looked at commons-beanutils-1.6-sources.jar and it did not contain a  
LICENSE and NOTICE file in the META-INF directory as required by http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#distribute-raw-artifact

.  I assume that is likely the case for the other source jar files.   
That is a mandatory -1 on these as releases for me.

The script used to prepare the source jars should be made available so  
that others can confirm that the build process is repeatable.  If I  
can look at the script, run it myself and compare my results with your  
results, I have more confidence that the process is repeatable and  
honest.  Obviously, the script should be ASL v2 licensed.
