woden.jar, woden-api.jar and woden-ant.jar lack LICENSE and NOTICE
files in their META-INF directories. all release artifacts that are
distributed from apache must have LICENSE and NOTICE files. if woden
plays to issue these jars through the maven repository they need to
have these files included. i strongly suggest that this release is

a few notes:

this appears to be a binary only release. open source releases should
definitely include a source distribution.

the tar.gz unpacks directly into the directory into which the command
is run. it's better to unpack into a subdirectory named after the
release type for example woden-incubating-1.0.0M6.

apache releases should include the apache name in the artifact for
example apache-woden-1.0.0.tar.gz. there is some discussion about how
strongly applies to incubating releases but i would recommend that you
get into the habit now.
