There are 3 directories under that tag; I would expect to find the
NOTICE, LICENSE and DISCLAIMER files at the top level rather than
under just one of them.

The files do end up at the top level in the source archive, which is good.

Also, the installerBadge directory tree does not appear to be included
in the source archive - is that intentional?
If so, why is it in the tag?

The key C1708693 does not appear to be available from the normal
public PGP key servers.

Some of the source files don't have an EOL at EOF (e.g.
ApacheFlexToolsStyle.css) in the SVN tag whereas they do have an EOL
in the source archive.
This is a packaging error, which can be sorted by ensuring that source
files always have an EOL at EOF, or by changing the packaging
instructions to not add the missing EOLs.
