A lot of source files don't have any license headers.
There's no DISCLAIMER in the archive; needs also to be added to SVN
alongside NOTICE and LICENSE.

The DISCLAIMER text must also be prominently displayed on the bigtop website.

IMO these must be fixed before a release.

The NOTICE file has a slightly different layout from normal (not a blocker).
It would look better if the paragraph were wrapped after "developed
at" - as is normally done - because the URL would then not be left

I would not expect the .gitignore files to be included in the source release.

There seems to be a problem with the packaging of the archive - I
would expect all files to be under the top-level directory
bigtop-0.1.0-incubating, but there are also parallel directories
package, sqoop, smokes etc.  This makes it very difficult to check the
archive against the source archive.

Again, I think this needs to be fixed before release.
