The new release candidate uses exactly the same name for the artifacts
and the SVN tag.

This makes it very difficult to determine later what was actually voted on.

Sigs and hashes seem OK.

The NOTICE files in the jar files are not quite right; there is a
spurious blank line (not a blocker) at the start (probably a bug in
the Maven plugin) and the Project name is incomplete: it should be
"Apache Empire-db ..." not "Empire-db ...".

Lots of missing SVN properties (not a blocker)

The SVN tag contains an "old" directory tree; if this is obsolete, it
should be removed from trunk and the next tag.

If not, then the source needs to be in the archives.
