from what I can see, they have a large number of dependencies and, IMO, have done an excellent
job of documenting their LICENSE/NOTICE. Scanning the list, it looks like licensing issues
were raised on their 0.2 release. From what I can see, the community responded to the issues
and fixed them -- excellent job Airavata!

Yes in Airavata we have fairly large transitive dependencies (112 jars) and it took us a while,
but thanks to our mentor Ate Douma's persistence we now have the binary distribution L&N
files right. An automatic tool would have been nice, but what we found was for some of the
non-apache jars you really have to go to the websites and find the files. If Kafka's needs
help in verifying the requirements for next release I will be happy to help. FYI, here are
