Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Unomi 1.1.0-incubating release

Hi,

-1 binding as it look like the source release has a dependancy on LGPL software. 

It may be that this is not actually a dependancy, and just an issue with the binary NOTICE
file - but either way it should be fixed.

Everything else looks good however.

In the binary NOTICE you have:

"This product contains a modified version of Dave Koelle's Alphanum Algorithm,
which can be obtained at:

  * LICENSE:
    * LICENSE.alphanum.txt (GNU LGPL 2.1 or above)
  * HOMEPAGE:
    * http://www.davekoelle.com/alphanum.html

LGPL is Category X [4]


Checked for the source release:
- name contains incubating
- signatures and hashes good
- DISCLAIMER exists
- LICENSE good
- NOTICE contains unneeded info re MIT licensed code [1]. Pease remove for next release.
- All source files have ASF headers
- No unexpected binary files
- Can compile from source

I didn’t fully check the binary release, but it has some LICENSE and NOTICE issues:
- The Apache license text should be at the start of the LICENSE File
- The NOTICE contain far too much unneeded information. See [2][3] on what goes in NOTICE.
- Looks like BINARY may contain LGPL licensed software according to it’s license.

Thanks,
Justin
