You perfectly understood. (A small change): Ideally, the
sablecc*-src.tar.gz should only include java-getopt*-src.tar.gz, and
same for anttask, files. Currently, it includes an anttask which
includes binary code (.jar and/or .class). I would change this.
Also, we could build "pure" binary distributions that would not include
source files (allowed, as long as source code is distributed on the same
site/location) to rreduce the download size. I have been reticent to
this in the past, but many have suggested it. So, as this is becoming a
community driven project, I am open to let users drive the direction.
So, unless somebody has objections to this, we could make the following
distribution files (same for anttask):
sablecc-x.y.z.tar.gz : includes everything (source + binary) [same for
included anttask-x.y.z & getopt]
sablecc-x.y.z-src.tar.gz : sources only (same for included anttask & getopt]
sablecc-x.y.z-bin.tar.gz : only .jar files [open to debate: should it
include anttask.jar or anttask-x.y.z-bin.tar.gz or both? If it doesn't
include the .tar.gz files, we should make sure there's a LICENSE file
included somewhere in each .jar file. Make your suggestions]

Can you privately send me your SF username? (I am lazy, I could find
