There's no Incubation DISCLAIMER.

SVN and the tar.gz both contain a copy of Findbugs, which is LGPL and
therefore cannot be distributed by ASF projects.

There are several other 3rd party libraries which don't use the Apache
License, but which are not mentioned in LICENSE.txt

All licenses must be included in LICENSE.txt, or at least referenced from it.

IMO these are all blocking.

Hi Edward,
72 hours is the normal waiting time for a vote. Many votes run for a longer period of time.
There's no need to re-open a vote.

FYI, I never received your original vote email. Not sure if anyone else got it...

I took a quick look at your release. You have problems with your LICENSE/NOTICE file. There
are artifacts in your lib under a non-Apache license. Yet there is no mention of them in your
LICENSE file. I would also expect that your NOTICE file does not contain the appropriate attributions.

Also, a DISCLAIMER is required for incubator releases.

Finally, both conf/ and src/test/ need to have apache source
license headers added.

Here's my -1 until these issues are resolved.
