I'm personally still concerned about MADLib's licensing status.
Specifically speaking, where I feel more info is needed around
modifications to the BSD licensed code.  None of that was in the legal
resolution.

I see DataFu just fixed an issue where their binaries didn't include
expected notice/license files.  I suspect if they cut a release, which
includes both source and convenience binary, and that release passes
without any issues, then they are likely ready to graduate.
