Seems like we need to evaluate the licenses more. I would like to ask for
help from the community in doing so.
This release has been dragging for long. Any suggestions on how we should
go forward with this ?

Thanks,
Neha

My point would be that it's very likely that your LICENSE file is incorrect
(i.e. it is missing necessary license information).

So far, the only LICENSE file changes that have been made are the explicit
issues that have been pointed out to you. I think the Kafka community needs
to review all of their artifacts and make sure that their licenses/notices
are accurately documented in the LICENSE (and NOTICE). I don't see any
evidence that the community has attempted to do this.

I think the artifacts that need to be reviewed are:

I took a quick look at some of these artifacts. I definitely see licenses
missing from the LICENSE file. For example:

paranamer-2.2.jar -- http://paranamer.codehaus.org/info/license.html
sbt-launch.jar -- has 4 license files -- license, licenses/LICENSE_Scala,
licenses/LICENSE_Apache, licenses/LICENSE_JLine (2 are missing from your
LICENSE)
hadoop -- has a unique license for the org.apache.hadoop.util.bloom.*
classes.

I don't know how many other problems there areā€¦ I'm sorry, but I don't have
time to generate this information for you (nor should I need to). This is
something the Kafka community needs to take on.

Please note that these are just the problems that I noticed. Someone should
document the licenses (and notice files) for each of your artifacts. Then
use this information to generate Kafka LICENSE/NOTICE files using this
information.
