no, a vote isn't the way to go.  since getting the files cleaned
up is one of the graduation criteria, it would essentially be a vote
on whether to ever graduate or not. :-)

information about ibm's involvement needs to go into a NOTICE file; see
http://www.apache.org/licenses/example-NOTICE.txt for an example.

both a LICENCE and a NOTICE file should be at the top level of the
source code repository, *and* in any binary distributions.
