developers: shouldn't require extra tools
translators: need to install whatever it takes
average users (who build from source): shoultn't require extra tools
average users (who use prebuilt binaries): not an issue
One category that I think is important but not in your list is those who
provide various distributions (i.e. the rpms, etc). I don't have a good
feeling if these are built from source or use the prebuilt binaries (I
suspect some of both). We shouldn't require them to install a bunch of
extra stuff in order to build from source as that would discourage them
from including the jdbc driver at all. We already require them to have
ant and a jdk which already may be too much for a non-java aware
distribution maintainer to track down and install.
So I guess I am leaning towards having the .class files in CVS and then
only the translators and those who really need to see the results of
translation changes need to do anything extra.
