Is used to run the unit tests on the project and we do not include them.

>JSDoc-1.9.9.2/

Creates the documentation for the project and is also not included.

Also, some of the files in the archive are different from the tagged
files, e.g.

build-manufacturing.xml has two different versions.
build.bat does not seem to be the same file at all
buildUtil$py.class

There seem to be a lot of class files in SVN - this is not usual.  These
files are not build from source but used in the build process when the
JavaScript file concatenation and compression is performed.

The structure of the distribution file is as follows.

dist - Contains the application structure a developer would need to be
used as a starting point for developing a XAP application.
docs - These would be the documentation files.
samples - These are the sample showing people different features.
source - Yes? These are all the source files that people use to build
the xapcode.js files from the source included in the project.  So I
guess in a way we could separate these files into another (distribution
file) and label it "-source.(zip)|(tar.gz).  

Would that make sense?

There will be one of these for each of the directories (samples, dist,
source)

>>Is it necessary to include both xapcore.js and xapcore.js.gz?
>>Similarly for the other .js/.js.gz file pairs.

It is necessary to include both of the files, it also the developer to
use either in their application.  We are including the three built
files.

xapcode.uncompressed.js - All JavaScript files concatenated in order of
dependencies.
xapcore.js - all files concatenated and compressed 
xapcore.js.gz - files concatenated, compressed and g-zipped

The two thumb files should not be included in the release this is a
mistake and thanks for catching that.
