Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Email 1.1 (RC2)
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2007 20:05:16 GMT
Everything looks good, except for one thing, which I think needs to be 
fixed: the jar with the javadocs does not contain NOTICE.txt and 
LICENSE.txt. (The jar with the sources contains these files, but they 
are stored in the top level rather than in META-INF; don't know whether 
this is problematic.)
