yep - better now

one reading of the various specifications has it that
'Implementation-Vendor-Id' is required. it's a little controvercial
since it's not very useful ATM but  there are no know disadvantages so
i'd recommend adding:

Implementation-Vendor-Id: org.apache

there are some other attributes which some people like to include but
IMHO they aren't as important as the ones there.

note: in the legal folder, it would be better to illustrate best
practice by including the notice files as well as the licenses for the
ASL'd jars. (this isn't strictly necessary since the notices should be
contained in the jars.)

but nothing that IMHO should block this release.

i'm +1
