Yes. The main release artifact is always the source package, and other
artifacts can be included in the release as long as they carry the
appropriate licensing information.

Looking back at my original message, it reads like I was suggesting
just the binary jar file, but that was certainly not my intention.
What I typically do for Apache releases is a) tag the source tree in
the repository, b) export it to local file system, c) package that
export as the main source artifact, and d) build any binary artifacts
from the exported source.

Sami added that for the NekoHTML dependency. I don't think we really
need that line unless we actually bundle the dependencies with Tika

I believe those are the canonical names, but the .txt extensions are
accepted. Having the .txt extension makes life easier at least on
