Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Lucene 2.2
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2007 07:06:52 GMT
Found three issues:
(1) Zip files fail to open with "my" WinZip.
(2) No meta-inf/license in some external jars.
(3) Empty lucene-similarity jar in the bin distribution.

More details below, but bottom line, (1) might be just my
problem (?), for (2) it might be ok for those external
jars not to have a license (?) but really IANAL,
and, (3) is minor, - we should remove contrib/similarity
which is practically empty, but this one should not stop
a release.

More details

For the two zip files:
For both md5sum check pass.
However, for both, Winzip on my XP failed to read the files.
This was with:
  Windows XP Professional 5.1 build 2600 Service Pack 2
  WinZip(R) 8.1 SR-1  (5266s)  compiled: Oct  1 2002

On a Windows Server 2003 both zip files opened ok,
though this was with a "Compressed (zipped) Folders
Extraction" program - seems like an integrated OS
utility on that machine (doesn't seem like WinZip,

So it might just be a bug in the WinZip version running
on my XP, but I wonder what others get for these files.

For the two tar.gz files:
md5sum check pass for both.
Binary version:
  built and ran the demos ok.
  License 2.0 & Notice under meta-inf in all jars - ok.
  lucene-similarity-2.2.0.jar is empty.
Src version:
  ant clean test - all passed.
  No (any) licence in some external jars:
   - Tidy.jar
   - gdata-client-1.0.jar
   - log4j-1.2.13.jar
   - servlet-api.jar
   - xercesImpl.jar
   - jline.jar
   - jakarta-regexp-1.4.jar
