Just curious, has any progress been made on this issue?

I had manually hunted down a lot of source attachments in the JBoss AS source directory (some are quite hard to find, like servlet-api.jar has its sources in jboss-web-sources.jar or something like that). However, when I moved to a new installation, I had to re-attach all those dozen of source code jars again. I'm starting to remember some now, so the third or fourth time along it gets easier, but it's still a rather unpleasant task to do.

Thank you again for taking the trouble to look into this.
