There must be a disclaimer saying that the project is undergoing Incubation.
This is normally in a DISCLAIMER file, which should be in SVN, source
and binary archives.

The website should also carry a prominent disclaimer, nromally at the
start of the index page.

The NOTICE file must only contain required notices, and only for items
that are actually included in the release, not run-time dependencies
that are downloaded by Maven.

E.g. is JUnit included in the release? If not, remove the reference.

Do not add any extraneous text to the Notice file - e.g explanations
and headings - it should be as short as possible (but no shorter).

The project name should be shown as "Apache Droids" in the Notice file(s).

I think the above all need to be fixed before release.

The source archive contents agree with SVN (apart from extra files
generated by Maven).
Sigs and hashes are OK; key is in public PGP repo.
Contents of jar files look good; there are N&L files in the META-INF dir.

The source and javadoc jar manifests could include the Specification entries.
It would be useful to include the Java source and target versions in
the binary jar manifests.

The SVN properties don't appear to have been set on many of the source
files, which suggests that some committers have not set up their SVN
defaults correctly.
(I'll raise a JIRA for correcting the properties)
