> The zip files for the binary and source releases of Axis 1.3 are 11MB and 18MB, which
is rather large - in particular the source zip.
> The source archive seems to include pretty well everything in the binary archive, as
well as the source itself.
> Is this really necessary? It contains a lot of class files, which surely aren't needed
in the source archive - indeed nor are the axis jars.
> Both archives have two copies of all the jars, one in lib/, and the other under webapps/
- would it not be possible to have just the one copy?
> Similarly for the samples - there are two copies of the class files, one under samples/,
and the other under webapps/
> May I suggest that all class files and jars are removed from the source archive?
> This would reduce the size to about 9MB. Removing the Javadoc as well would bring it
down to a reasonable 4MB.
> Removing the duplicate class and jar files from the binary archive would bring it down
to about 9MB; it could be made a bit smaller by removing the sample directories.
> It might be worth considering releasing the Javadoc as a separate archive, as it is about
5MB on its own.
