Thanks, Andrew.  No need to apologize; it's common for someone to 
assume that issues of interest to the PMC should be sent to
pmc@. ;-)  We just try to conduct as much discussion as possible on
this list.

I assume you mean binaries _and source_ distributions, since that is what
appears at that site.

IIUC, we're still waiting on either a) IBM to update the copyright 
notices to look like what is found in other Apache projects, or
b) ASF's legal counsel to advise whether the policy should be modified.

>From a quick look at the downloads, it looks like you've got the 
incubator disclaimer and filename issues covered, but both source
and binaries include text such as:

   Licensed Materials - Property of IBM
   Cloudscape - Package
   (C) Copyright IBM Corp. 1998, 2004. All Rights Reserved.
   US Government Users Restricted Rights - Use, duplication or
   disclosure restricted by GSA ADP Schedule Contract with IBM Corp.

I believe this needs to change.
