(non-binding)

a few little nits (nothing serious, more FYI for next time):

1 there are some encoding issues down at the bottom of the LICENSE.txt. they
don't effect the meaning.
2 STATUS seems like it might be a little outdated re:PENDING ISSUES. might
be good to list M1 in the release status
3 MANIFEST files lack a Implementation-Vendor-Id and so are not fully
complient. it's conventional to use 'org.apache'.

one slightly more serious point:

4 the tuscany jar's don't contain NOTICE files. all distributed artifacts
*must* contain these LICENSE and NOTICE files. if these jars don't contain
these files then they cannot be released via the apache jar repository
(which is mirrored to the maven repository on ibiblio). read
http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html. it's traditional to include LICENSE
and NOTICE files within META-INF (but that's not mandatory).
http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/releases/prepare.html contains maven 1
snippets.

but overall not bad :-)
