Generally I think it's just wasted diskspace. The ones that do exist
are for when their test process involves downloading a full
distribution and not just a jar (least that's what they tell me :)  ).
There's nothing in Maven that would use the distributions and I think
it's just an old idea that didn't go anywhere.

Unsure though. Adding repository@ back on so that experts there can comment.
