The release notes / download page is only available through direct link
(it's not linked from anywhere on the site whatsoever).

What would be the preferred alternative? Not staging the release notes, and
linking to all artifacts directly within the vote email?

Fair enough. The single author is a holdover from the pre-Apache days. I'll
open an issue to address this.

Makefile.in is autogenerated. Non-ASF headers are present because they're
placed there by GNU Autotools. I don't think it's possible to configure
autotools to not include their headers in its output.

I also don't see the FSF

Does the license of autotools need to be included in LICENSE? I do see
reference to autotools being approved for usage within the ASF, but not any
example to how the license of those tools should be cited in practice,
being not a bundled dependency per se.

What would you recommend here?

Thanks,
