Subject Re: Feedback on updated NOTICE and LICENSE files (was: [VOTE] Release Kafka 0.7.0-incubating)

that are not in the LICENSE file.

Thanks for the feedback! As I have already mentioned, we are tracking a bug
to fix all non-blocker changes to the NOTICE file for the next release.
I will include this feedback there.

Correct me if I understood the long discussions on this list, but I don't
think this blocks the current release.

for.

We have the header for MIT and Nunit license. Didn't include it for the
SCALA license for a project that is written in scala. Also didn't include
it for the Apache license for an Apache incubator project.

Hope that sounds reasonable.

Thanks,
Neha
