I've not checked these.

The .asc.md5 and .asc.sha1 hashes should be deleted as they serve no purpose.

The POM files in the source archives have the wrong version; they are using
1.0.0-incubating-SNAPSHOT whereas they should have

This is a release blocker. Looks like the artifacts were built from
the wrong SVN checkout.

The source archives have an additional top-level src/ directory which
is not usual.

Normally this is included in the parent, e.g.


rather than


This is not a release-blocker.

There are some major problems with the NOTICE and LICENSE files.

The NOTICE file must start with:

Apache OpenWebBeans
Copyright 2008, 2009 The Apache Software Foundation

The preceeding 4 lines need to be removed.
Also, the NOTICE file is much too long, it should be used for required
elements only, so remove any references to other ASF projects and all
the headers enclosed in ==

Some of the other entries include too much data.

The LICENSES file only contains the Apache License. It must contain
all the required licenses.

These are both release blockers.

There is at least one file in SVN with inconsistent line-endings:

svn pl -v openwebbeans-1.0.0-incubating-M2/samples/guess
Properties on 'openwebbeans-1.0.0-incubating-M2\samples\guess':
svn: Inconsistent line ending style

It looks like the svn:eol-style properties are missing from a lot of files.

This makes it difficult to use the code except on OSes with the same
EOL as the file happens to be.

This ought to be fixed before creating any new tags, because the tags
cannot be fixed later.

My vote is -1, based on the problems with the N & L files, and the
incorrect version in the pom.xml
