I appreciate that, I applaud your efforts, and apologize if I'm being  
a PITA. However, we also have a responsibility as a community when  
releasing software. I'm trying to be sure we are addressing that  

For instance, I see that genesis-1.0 includes a software license for  
Clover? News to me, but I confess that genesis has been a bit of an  
unknown to me...

Product: Clover
License: Open Source License, 0.x, 1.x
Issued: Sun May 14 2006 21:59:13 CDT
Expiry: Never
Maintenance Expiry: Never
Key: 965016739f4031c43d67e61b0
Name: Jason Dillon
Org: Apache Geronimo

Clause 5 of the Clover license says "The Licensee may copy the  
Software for back-up purposes only. The Licensee may not assign or  
otherwise transfer the Software to any third party." IANAL ADNWTB,  
however, this gives me cause for concern. Can you explain what this  
is about?

How is Groovy licensed? Do we need to include it in LICENSE and  
NOTICE file?

bootstrap and bootstrap.bat should contain an APACHE LICENSE...
