I've send https://github.com/wildfly/wildfly-core/pull/2880
which changes wildfly-core to never produce "inflated" build/distro with

As part of this work, "dist" folder is now used for just that, for

So unless build is invoked with -Drelease which is something that is done
as part of release process, "dist" folder will be empty and wont produce

This was done to reduce unnecessary IO work and producing multiple server
builds without need for them.
I am sending this mail mostly as FYI that further work on this is going to
happen, in core and in full, and such changes might clash with some
poeple's workflows, where they are used to expect server dist to be in
"dist" folder but it is not there yet.
