I can't find a DISCLAIMER file or the Incubator disclaimer text anywhere in
the release artifacts. If it is there and I've just missed it then +1 as the
rest of it looks good, but if the disclaimer is missing then that probably
needs to be fixed.

A couple of other non-blocking comments:

Nothing in the readme or releases notes says what Etch does, might be nice
to have a brief sentence or two saying what the project is about.

There's a Cisco copyright at the top of all the source files, can that be
moved to the NOTICE file as described at:
http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#headers
