I will add the NOTICE and LICENSE files so that they are included in the 
spec jars.
This is mandatory for publicly available jars (so afaik, all).

Specs jars are built with m2 and this i svery important that they are

I have tested under cygwin.  I will try with plain windows command line, 
but I fear this is the same problem.
I will update the JIRA accordingly.

I will add the in the META-INF directory for all geronimo jars (not sure 
if it can be done for car files, though)
