our mentors will soon vote, but expect to need more binding votes from the IPMC to make this
release happen.

Sigs and hashes OK.

There is only a combined source/binary archive, which is not standard practise.
All other projects release a source archive; almost all also release a
separate binary archive.

The archive does not have a DISCLAIMER file - yes, the disclaimer text
is in README, but the general practise is for a separate file.

The NOTICE file is incorrect. The date is 2008, and the second
paragraph must be:

This product includes software developed at
The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).

i.e. switch the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs

Minor points:

It would be useful to include compiler source and target versions as
headers in the jar manifests (the manifests are otherwise good)

The Tutorial has a typo on the first page:
     "Introduction to Apache-Emprie-db using the DBSample project"
Also, there does not appear to be a directory called examples/DBSample
The Copyright year is 2008.

Maven says:
[INFO] inceptionYear not specified, defaulting to 2009

There don't seem to be any tests

Maven fails:

[INFO] [assembly:assembly]
[INFO] Reading assembly descriptor: empire-assembly-all.xml
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[ERROR] BUILD ERROR
[INFO] ------------------------------------------------------------------------
[INFO] Error reading assemblies: Error locating assembly descriptor:
empire-assembly-all.xml

** It looks like the file is missing from the archive; this is why it
would be helpful to have the SVN tag **
