I think that's a blocker.

IMO, Release notes should be included in the archives; it's easy
enough to generate a text copy from changes.xml and commit to SVN just
before release:

mvn changes:changes-report changes:announcement-generate
and then move target/announcement/announcement.vm to RN.

The VFS pom has a relnotes profile which automatically creates the RN
in situ, and also uses a more sophisticated VM source
The NET project includes a generic VM source release-notes.vm which is
also in MATH (probably should add relnotes profile to commons parent)

Also, it's useful to include the javadocs in the binary archive.
Looks like the assembly phase failed because bin.xml includes the javadocs

Blocker because it probably caused the incorrect source archive.

BTW, it would be easier to notice such things if the properties were
defined near the start of the pom ...

The binary jar in the bundle does not appear to be the same as the one

DbUtils should be used as adjective in first mention on front page.
First license link points to local license page; either point to or drop the link as it is included
under Commons heading; in any case, delete the local license page.
