The problem with this drop tarball method is the
update is all you can see.

How do we know what the actual changes are between these tarballs?  Is
there some JAXP repository somewhere these are derived from, with
appropriate tagging?

When we had the source code in the repository, we could at least see
what changes were being made.  Having to track down and patch some
JAXP issues recently has been a nightmare with this drop tarball
