Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Ranger 0.5.0 (incubating)

Thanks for looking into this. The MPL license was used by pnotify. We
removed it as part of JIRA
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-316, but we didn¹t update the
LICENSE.txt file. Is it okay to remove the license text from the file
during our next release or is it a blocker for this release? I have
created JIRA https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-542 to track it.

We will also address your rest of your concerns during our next release. I
have created the following JIRA to track it
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RANGER-541.

Thanks

Bosco
