ok except for the signature issue

major issues

gpg --verify sca-api-r1.0-1.0-incubating.jar.asc sca-api-r1.0-1.0-incubating.jar
gpg: Signature made Sun Mar  4 01:53:25 2007 GMT using DSA key ID 11007026
gpg: BAD signature from "Jeremy Boynes <>"

MD5 sums look right

notes and comments

(subjective, not binding)

it's good to include the project name in the jar

the latest advice on best practice from cliff is that a separate
DISCLAIMER.txt is preferred to including the incubator disclaimer in
the NOTICE.txt. the reason is that the NOTICE.txt has legal
implications so it's best to restrict the contents. incubator policy
asks that the DISCLAIMER is distributed but this isn't something we
require by downstream. IMHO this isn't important enough to consider

i assume that this is an apache implementation of an osoa standard
(please correct me if this is wrong). the MANIFEST is short on details
and is missing standard/required/recommended attributes. it's good to
have the relationship between implementator and specifier clearly
listed in the MANIFEST.

org/osoa/sca-api-r1.0/1.0-incubating/ it's unusual to see 1.0 in there
twice but then again, this may well be intentional (but though it best
to point it out)
