Subject Re: [VOTE] Avro release 1.8.0 (rc0)
Date Fri, 14 Aug 2015 07:55:42 GMT
-1 non-binding

* checksums match
* verified signatures with Tom's key from svn

I haven't gotten to finish going through everything, but I've already found
several places where we aren't meeting the ASF policy on license
notification[1]. HBase recently had to deal with a similar morass[2], so I
have some familiarity in fixing these things, but I'm afraid I don't have
bandwidth until late next week.

1) The following proposed distribution artifacts are completely missing
LICENSE/NOTICE files at the top level:

  * avro-csharp

  * avro-doc

  * py

  * python3

  * ruby gem

2) The Perl distribution artifact is missing the LICENSE file. It has a
NOTICE file, but that file declares Copyright (C) 2010 Yann Kerherve rather
than meeting the ASF policy.

3) The source distribution artifact is missing some LICENSE/NOTICE entries
for bundled third party works. I haven't gotten to exhaustively check, but

* avro-src-1.8.0/lang/c/jansson/install-sh
* avro-src-1.8.0/lang/c/jansson/configure
* avro-src-1.8.0/lang/c++/m4/m4_ax_boost_base.m4

4) The c and c++ distribution artifacts have a single COPYING file
containing the ASLv2 text rather than the ASF required LICENSE/NOTICE.
additionally they are both missing needed LICENSE/NOTICE entries based on
what's present.

5) The php distribution artifact has LICENSE/NOTICE files that include
entries about the c and c# implementation, which are not actually bundled.

6) The avro-ipc-sources jar bundles jquery but does not mention it in the

7) The avro-tool fat jar has several extraneous license files and the
META-INF/LICENSE & META-INF/NOTICE do not properly reflect bundled works

 * the top of the jar has a LICENSE.txt/NOTICE.txt file from some
dependency that should not be present
 * META-INF contains both LICENSE and LICENSE.txt, both are vanilla ASLv2.
we should have just LICENSE and it should include needed additions for
bundled works
 * META-INF/ASLv2 is another extraneous copy of the ASLv2 text
 * META-INF/NOTICE.txt appears to be from commons-compress
 * the majority of bundled works are not reflected at all (spot checking
shows e.g. some MIT and BSD that require entries in LICENSE)


a) The c# distribution artifact untars directly into the working directory.
