+0 (hopefully soon to be +1 once the question below is resolved

- questions -
is missing license, disclaimer and notice files. it cannot therefore
be distributed. planning to distribute this jar from a repository? (if
yes then IMHO the release needs recutting, if no it's fine)

- notes, comments and suggestions (not requirements) -

MANIFEST's are a little empty. sun recommends quite a list in one
place or another (Extension-Name, Specification-Title,
Specification-Vendor, Specification-Version, Implementation-Vendor-Id,
Implementation-Title, Implementation-Vendor, Implementation-Version).
AIUI maven will generate these if asked.

once cxf graduates, remember that all artifacts need to be prefixed with apache

the source contains some xml specifications that are licensed under
non-open source licenses (copy and distribution only). it is proposed
( that this is against policy.
there is still time to join in the discussions (on legal-discuss)
before this policy is adopted.

perhaps add link to issue tracking system to the README get started section
