Unfortunately, I didn't check that the build for the apache-rat runnable 
uber-jar uses the maven-shade plugin :-( This means that the jar is 
missing NOTICE files for the Apache Licensed dependencies included 
within the jar. Apologies.

All the dependences involved are Apache Software Foundation releases. 
Unless anyone spots something, I can't see this mistake posing a legal 
risk to downstream users.

So, unless anyone jumps in, I'll just go ahead to fix the issue in 
trunk, delete the staging repository and then think about cut another 

I'm less sure about the best approach to numbering this new candidate. 
(In the past, I've cut release candidates first. Even with a staging 
repository this would have been sensible.) I lean towards 0.9.1, 
eliminating any risk that two signed 0.9 could escape into the wild.

Opinions? Objections? Suggestions?
