Currently the (sub-) projects create distributables like
jsr80<xxx>.jar. This nameing should be changed to one
describing the distributable in more detail.

I suggest the following scheme:

javax-ubs[[-ri]-<platform>]-<version>.jar

Example:

javax-usb-0.10.2.jar
javax-usb-ri-0.10.2.jar
javax-usb-ri-linux-0.10.2.jar
javax-usb-ri-windows-0.9.x.jar

    This is a good idea. The native libraries should also be
    versioned. I have changed this to a Bug and assigned it to
    myself. I will add versioning in the final release (1.0.0).

    version numbers added to files in RPM (or other packaging)
    and those provided directly on the download page.
