i don't check the jars in there, just in here :-)

AIUI there are historic quality issues with the maven repository. FWIW
i hope that one day we'll move to automatic verification using a
commit hook in subversion but there code that needs to be written
before that can happen

it's long standing policy: all distributed artifacts must contain
LICENSE and NOTICE files (plus disclaimer for podlings).

RAT doesn't do jars and spidering yet so these need to be checked
manually. so mistakes happen. i generally only manually check a
sample. (believe it or not, i do have better things to do on a rainy
thursday than check every jar in a servicemix release)

it's the actual artifacts themselves: they should contain the full
project name (for example apache-ant). AIUI this gives the project
some trademark leverage over bogus jars.
