I talked to Ryan Campbel...
We will create a ZIP files with MD5 and that kind of stuff.
Most of the standalone projects (e.g. cache, aop, jgroups) tend to release zip files. Generally there a number of things which are distributed in these zips.
1) A changelog
2) Thirdparty jars
3) Licenses for thirdparty jars
4) Documentation (javadocs, tutorials, test results)
I'm dependent on log4j. which is apache license, right?
Can I redistribute log4j.jar in a thirdparty libraries?
I'm also dependent on trove.jar, but since trove is LGPL I don't think there is an issue here.
For small projects it often makes sense to release the full sources + dependencies, plus the pre-build binary/doc (i.e. jar in your case).
Congrats on the release!
