The src distribution is something that was requested by a few people in
the early days of JAMWiki development to allow them to easily and
quickly examine JAMWiki source code without the need to use Subversion.
Obviously anyone who wants to build the code can't use this
distribution, but over the years I've gotten several bug reports from
people who installed JAMWiki, encountered a problem, and then looked at
this code to track down the issue. The download stats for JAMWiki 0.9.4
show 563 downloads of the WAR file and 97 downloads of the src file, so
it appears to still be fairly popular.

This sounds good - I'll check it out and start using it for the 1.0.0.
release. As long as there is source code distribution available for
download from Sourceforge then everyone should be happy.
