    Make the distribution layout more clear

    Lukáš Fryč Master

      I would like to make the layout of ZIP distribution as clear as possible.

       

      Currently, JAR artifacts are distributed in ZIP distribution as follows:

       

      /artifacts
         /archetypes
         /framework
             richfaces.jar
             richfaces-sources.jar
         /lib
             {dependency}.jar
      /examples
      

       

       

      I propose to change this layout for several reasons:

       

       

      * layout should be understandable to newcomers

      ** word artifact is rather familiar to Maven users

      ** word framework doesn't have to be taken well

      * I assume others projects more or less follow one of following "conventions"

      This layout counts with richfaces.jar in top-level directory:

       

      /archetypes
      /examples
      /lib
          {dependency}.jar
      richfaces.jar
      richfaces-sources.jar
      

       

       

      or the one which has /bin directory with richfaces.jar:

       

       

      /archetypes
      /examples
      /lib
          {dependency}.jar
      /bin
          richfaces.jar
          richfaces-sources.jar
