==== important

in the impl jar, file META-INF/standard-faces-config.xml has a few
component entries like this:
                The URL of the image. If the URL starts with a '/', it
is relative
                to the context path of the web application.
                This attribute is an alias for the "value" property.

Will this cause problems? I don't know what the "description" field in a
standard-faces-config file is used for..

Can we please hava a CLIRR report to check for binary incompatibilities?


==== less important

Normally in commons, the following entries are also added to manifests:
so that it is clear which versions of java this is compatible with.

Neither the shared, api nor impl jars have these entries.

The bytecode version in the classes is 49, ie java5 which is fine.

The MANIFEST.MF file for the shared-core-sources has no version info at

The api jar has a strange META-INF/rsc subdirectory.

the impl jar has "myfaces_core.tld" but "myfaces-html.tld".

Not a problem AFAIK, but a little inconsistent.

Nothing else significant that I can see in the binaries.

Apart from the oddity in the standard-faces-config (which might not
actually cause a problem) none of the above seems worth blocking a
release for.

BTW, is there going to be a tgz "download bundle"? If so, do you have a
link to the RC for that?
