Date Sat, 03 Sep 2016 10:43:20 GMT

Github user trixpan commented on the issue:
    Please note that while I will be happy to keep rebasing as peer review is in progress,
this PR makes additions to the nifi-assembly LICENSE and NOTICE files so it is expected it
will continue experience merge conflicts, as other PRs try to change the same file.

> during the review of NIFI-1899 Dan Marshall highlighted some use cases for email processing
that have not been addressed as part of the initial development cycle.
> One of these use cases was the decoding of Microsoft Transport Neutral Encoding Files
> This type of attachments is popularly know as winmail.dat and uses a non RFC compliant
structure to transfer attachments across different Microsoft Outlook clients.
> Given the prevalence of outlook and the issues with winmail.dat files, it would be nice
to be able to decode TNEF as we currently do with MIME attachments.
