i have no doubts about the process. releases, though, have proved to
be an educational process here in the incubator.

i ran RAT against the snapshots. not bad but has a few of the usual
problems (some missing license headers from property, configuration,
scripts and css documents). as mentioned, unless harmony's policy is
to discourage people from posting jars in the repositories they need
LICENSE and NOTICE files. i also think that antlr's license is missing
from the third party licenses. (RAT doesn't match jars with
NOTICE/LICENSE yet so there may be more.)

(i'll run RAT against the source and submit a JIRA or something with
the issues but may be later on next week. alternatively, checked the
source out from http://code.google.com/p/arat/ but it's very user
unfriendly...)

no serious concerns (problems look like oversights) but there's still
some work need...
