I personally expect the javadocs to be present in a binary release. The
alternative is to publish a separate zip (fop-0.90alpha1-docs.zip) with
the docs/ and /javadocs directory and remove them from the binary

Yes, that's probably broken ever since Gump got their Solaris zone and
they moved to http://vmgump.apache.org. The problem is that they don't
seem to create the federated javadocs anymore. Or I just don't find them.
I'll see to it that we have them on our site.
