Unfortunately I'm -1 on the release, I have a few issues including a
GPL dependency.

1) jwebunit dependency is GPL
The server module depends on


which according to is GPL.

2) The sha1 digest does not match, did I do something wrong?

$ openssl sha1 apache-esme-incubating-1.0-src.tar.gz

$ cat apache-esme-incubating-1.0-src.tar.gz.sha
apache-esme-incubating-1.0-src.tar.gz: A53494C8 55474CE3 5AC20516 C2448CB6

3) mvn dependency:analyze of the server module shows lots of unused
declared dependencies, those should be cleaned up, especially
openDMK:jdmkrt:jar which according to is
either GPL or CDDL license. Not sure which parts of OpenDMK are which
license, but as it's unused better remove it.

4) When trying to build esme-java-client with "mvn clean install" I
get "Embedded error: Error while executing the external compiler" if
JAVA_HOME is not set.

5) apache-esme-incubating-1.0-src.tar.gz contains .svn folders, it
should not have that. You could have created the release using svn
export of
to avoid that.

6) I couldn't find license information for the
com.twitter:stats:jar:1.3:compile dependency, was that checked to be

Sorry that I didn't have time to look at that during the ESME podling vote.

Apart from the GPL dependency the release preparation looks mostly ok,
rat reports are good, license/notice are provided, etc.
