[DD] Agreed. I did something similar in a now defunct ad-hoc Ivy
look-alike, and it also guarantees access to the exact sources used to
produce the jar(s) without having to hunt for them in the SCM using a
tag or rev.

So I would like to change the build so that each ant jar has its corresponding source jar.
And I think I'll also make an ant-1.8.3-javadocs.jar too. Theses jars would be only published
to the maven repository, they won't be part of the distribution tgz.

[DD] +1.

> Is there any objection regarding the publication of such jars ?

[DD] Sounds reasonable to me. --DD
