+1 (binding) for 3.1.0-alpha-1

The following issue needs to be resolved before I will vote +1 on a non-alpha release:

http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-5470

RAT is reporting the 391 files are either missing license headers or have not been flagged as files that cannot support a license header. Most of these are test data files and I would be happy to argue that the test may require a specific exact content for reproducibility, but the following I do not feel I can make a case for. I will require these 39 files to be addressed in some way before the final 3.1.0 release or I cannot provide a binding vote for the release. (the MANIFEST.MF may be one where a header does not make sense, but it is a non-generated file)

I cannot speak for the rest of the PMC, but my understanding is that as a PMC member it is one of our duties to ensure that the source (which is what the vote is on) has met with the ASF requirements for license headers.

Here are the release bits for 3.1.0-alpha-1:

Staged distribution:

Anyone trying this in advance should know that the Site, Dependency, and Shade plugin are not going to work. We are aware of this and those responsible for those plugins are looking into it.

Thanks,

Jason
