Hi Sebb,
you can find my replies embedded below.

I am going to send a [CANCEL] reply to this thread, remove Nexus staging 
repo and SVN tag, fix everything and start again the release process for 
1.0.0-RC1-incubating from scratch.

The LICENSE and NOTICE files were written against the parent POM: all 
the dependencies with scope != test were considered, then.

in the NOTICE file.

All the AL 2.0 dependencies not from ASF were added anyway to the 
LICENSE and NOTICE files; we preferred to have these two files with the 
same entries, even though for different purposes.

Already fixed in trunk: thanks for reporting!

As you might have noticed, the root POM is not the parent POM, and 
parent POM does extend Apache POM 10.
The root POM is only functional to perform some actions: anyway we'll 
try to make it extend Apache POM as well.

FYI, we have already planned to "normalize" POM structure in next major 
release (see SYNCOPE-79 on JIRA)
