Subject [DISCUSS] LICENSE & NOTICE file verification for 0.2-Incubating RC2
Date Sun, 05 Feb 2012 09:36:00 GMT
Many thanks to Lahiru & Heshan for going through each of the pom's and making sure all
license and notice files now cover transitive dependencies. I did a sanity check and also
cleaned up the builds. All the concerns raised so far seems to be addressed. 

I want to summarize the issues raised for 0.2-Incubating RC1 and see if we have addressed
them. Once we make sure all issues are addressed, we can go for a formal vote. 

* There are multiple url's which is inconvenient for reviewers
* After vote, the source and binary have to be staged on ASF mirrored location.
--Both of these are addressed in consultation with Chris and will follow these for RC2 and
further releases

* Axis2 pom download error
--It is caused by a corrupt axis2 pom unrelated to the RC. Rebuilding with a clean .m2 worked.
* Type in README 
* Usability issue in 10 minute tutorial related to XML serialization
--deferred to future release for improvements. 

* Multiple concerns on 3rd party licenses and notices
 --There were two issues, firstly the build was not copying the correct L&N files and
secondly the transitive licenses were incomplete. Both of these issues are now addressed.

Please verify if the above issues are fixed in the following:

Unified release URL -

detailed urls:
Source -
ChangeLog -
Binary -
Maven staging repo -
KEYS - ((signed using 617DDBAD)

Hi Ate,

I think we have enough eye balls looking at the technical validity of the release but need
your techno-legal expertise to make sure L,N,D files meet the requirements. Will greatly appreciate
your time.
