Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache NetBeans 9.0 Beta (incubating) rc3
Date Sun, 11 Feb 2018 19:55:51 GMT
What happened to 
LEGAL-361 <https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-361>
?

My impression from this issue is that the previous RC included a binary jar that was mostly
EPL 1.0 but had at least one file that no one knew the origin, contents, or license of.  I
don’t see that any progress has been made on this issue, has the jar been removed from the
new RC?  I just scanned a couple of the links below but didn’t see any mention of this.
