Common Distribution Structure Template
For consistency in navigation and understanding of a JBoss project binary distribution, use a distribution structure that reflects the main elements of this template:
+ project-version --+ bin --+ copying.txt/html --+ readme.txt/html --+ install.txt/html --+ release-notes.txt/html --+ docs ----+ licenses --+ lib --+ src
project-version - the root distribution directory should incorporate the project name and version.
bin - an optional directory for scripts/executables associated with the dist.
copying.txt/html - a document describing the conditions for copying/distributing the binary along with any required copyright attribution.
readme.txt/html - a top level readme overview of the release, with a description, installation instruction, release notes, links to copyright and license terms.
install.txt/html - an optional detailed installation instruction document linked to by the readme.
release-notes.txt/html - an optional release notes document linked to by the readme.
docs - the root for examples, javadoc api, etc.
docs/licenses - the license terms for the distribution and its dependency libraries.
lib - a top level directory for thirdparty and/or common distribution jars/resources.
src - the root for source if source is bundled with the distribution.
