RAT is a superb tool and its not only for ASF. In WSO2 we have now started
to use RAT on releases .. still early stage (and RAT is finding lots of
issues) but the plan is to incorporate it into the nightly build process so
we catch issue early. I am certain RAT will keep growing to handle more
complexity and scenarios and it makes sense for it to become its own thing.

So totally +1 from me to going TLP.
