[cross-project-issues-dev] staging directory for jar signs ... what should we use (sorry if this is a duplicate post)

Pardon me if this is a duplicate post but I think I sent the first to
the wrong list.

I've been trying out jar signing for our ECF plugins. Nick Boldt and
Kim Moir have been very helpful. Kim suggested that I direct future
questions to this list so that everyone can benefit from answers.

What I found out was that I could not just try out signing in my
auto-mounted home on build.eclipse. I get the message
ERROR: File /home/data/users/tkubaska/xfer/
is not in the downloads staging area. Not signing from unknown
Signing aborted.

So I have two questions.

The first is where should I put our jar to be signed? I think from
looking at Nick's sample ant files that it is
/home/data/httpd/download-staging.priv/eclipse.  Do all eclipse plugin
projects put their jars in
/home/data/httpd/download-staging.priv/eclipse? Admittedly we delete
the jar after signing, but I'm hesitant to use what appears to be a
general purpose directory. Should I make my own sub-directory and use

The second question is does the signing script make the
stagingDirectoryOutput or should I create one before signing? The
actual invocation of sign that I want to use looks like
/usr/bin/sign ${stagingDirectory}/${archiveName} nomail
