release? If so, this is the time to discuss them!

I'll browse the open issues as well during the weekend. Could check all 
bundles being versioned as 1.0 during that time as well.

that uses it, and indirectly, because jclouds uses it. Jan Willem looked into this and what
it would mean to release this a while ago, but I believe our question to legal regarding this
is still open. We have two options: a) remove BouncyCastle from the release, meaning we can't
release one test and our jclouds support, or b) make sure we get a good answer from legal
and a way forward so we can release this. Any thoughts?

Same opinion like others already mentioned, keeping it out for this 
release make sense.
