There's no source archive.
ASF primarily releases source; binary archives are optional (but
almost always provided).
Source archives are required.

The binary archive is huge; this is mainly because it contains
multiple copies of many jars.
It would be better for users if there was a single copy of each jar,
and an installation script to copy them after unpacking.

The normal practice is to use an SVN tag for the release vote, for example:

https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/kafka/tags/0.7.0-incubating-RC1

If the vote succeeds, rename/copy it to
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/kafka/tags/0.7.0-incubating

If the vote fails, create a new tag:
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/kafka/tags/0.7.0-incubating-RC2

There is no DISCLAIMER

The NOTICE file does not follow standards.
The first 5 lines should look like the lines in === below:

===
Apache Kafka
Copyright ?-2011 The Apache Software Foundation.

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

The rest of the NOTICE file should be for *required* notices only; it
is not required to list other Apache projects.

The NOTICE file also contains a license, that should be in LICENSE.
No mention of sbt, which is in SVN - as that is also included in the
binary release, should that be mentioned in the NOTICE file?
