Notice file still shows 2010.

It also refers to the (optional) Javamail library.
Since that is not actually included in any of the archives, it should
not be mentioned.

[If it were necessary to include a mention of JavaMail in NOTICE, then
it would be necessary to include the corresponding license in LICENSE]


Not a blocker, but a pain for checking the release:
- lots of source files contain @version $Revision $. This uses local
time, which means my checkout of SVN does not match the source

There are some EOL issues:

svn ps svn:eol-style native README.txt
svn ps svn:eol-style native RELEASE-NOTES.txt
svn ps svn:eol-style native osgi/MANIFEST.MF
svn ps svn:eol-style native src/changes/announcement.vm

I'm not convinced that the code really needs to be
binary-incompatible, but that is a separate discussion.

However, the release notes ought to mention code is not source
compatible with VFS 1.x and that the package name has changed.

mvn install produces some warnings:

[WARNING] Ignoring project type pom - supportedProjectTypes = [jar, bundle]
[WARNING] DEPRECATED [tasks]: Use target instead
[WARNING] DEPRECATED [systemProperties]: Use systemPropertyVariables instead.

also the error

[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] Error assembling JAR

Embedded error: Manifest file:
does not exist.

This is a blocker.
