Subject Release comments from Justin.
Date Sun, 09 Aug 2015 11:42:12 GMT
Justin just gave me a reply super fast on the "status" of our release.

For those of you who do not know who Justin is:
Justin is (in my opinion) THE release validator in Incubator, whenever
IPMC does a release vote, Justin is doing a magnificent control of the
release,
helping podlings to get things right.

I take his advices very seriously, so I intent to do the same in our case.

Please remember his intention is not to make us fail, but to help us get a
release cut.

As you can read below, we have a single code change (iconv) and a lot of
text changes,
I will start working on it later today. I might need help understanding the
iconv dependency.

thanks justin

Hi,

Issues I’ve noticed:
* Missing a DISCLAIMER file (although README.md does say it's an incubating
project).
LICENSE looks like it missing something under “3rd party libraries” (but
see below).
NOTICE is a bit odd, I’m not sure any of the programs mentioned need to go
there.
w3c-tidy-html5 is WC3/BSD like so should go in LICENSE not NOTICE [1]
* iconv is GPL from a quick look, is this a required dependancy or just a
build tool?
libxml is MIT so I think that should be put in LICENSE not NOTICE [1]
SDL2 and SDL2_image is zlib (I think) which is comparable and should be
treated like MIT [1]
zlib is also zlib and should go in LICENSE
LICENSE is missing jquery
(./DocFormats/platform/3rdparty/w3c-tidy-html5/htmldoc/api/jquery.js)

Unless the items (libxml, SDL2, SDL2_image, zlib etc) are included in the
actual release it may be that they don’t need to go in LICENSE at all [2]
So I think it’s only w3c-tidy-html5 and jquery that need to go there.

One with * would be blockers in IPMC vote IMO.

I had a quick go a building but the instructions seemed a bit brief and I’m
not familiar in what to do.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Justin
