Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Etch 1.0.2-incubating
Date Wed, 04 Mar 2009 14:20:50 GMT
I probably missed the disclaimer text completely. Is there a
web-page/reference that describes what should be in it?

As for the headers, this is a known inconsistency in some of the
source files. We have already corrected it in trunk and it will be
part of the 1.1 release.
