Just back from a week's vacation and catching up on this thread...

+1. It's great that Sebb has raised these issues, but I don't think they 
are blockers for the M1 we have already voted on. I vote for fixing them 
in the M2 release and going ahead with M1 as is (although I do agree, 
the incorrect year in the notice file is annoying).

Were all the errors listed in this thread detected by the RAT tool? 
Would it be possible to automate this tool as part of our Hudson builds 
so we find out about issues as soon as they are introduced?
