Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Trafodion 2.0.1 (incubating)

Also note that I started a thread on it [1].  It appears that the source
files you're using have been relicensed under the BSD-3-clause, as a result
I would recommend switching to those versions.

In light of the clarification of Cat-X, I have to change to a -1 due to
licensing issues.
