I had a quick look though the images and couldn't find any eclipse icons, Can you point out
what files are licensed under this license?

If they are only images then that should be fine in a source release. However the EPL licence
in full or a pointer to a text version should be in LICENSE, I'm not 100% sure if anything
needs to go in NOTICE or not not with EPL.

I think the LICENCE/NOTICE issues are serious enough that the RC needs to be redone, so you
might as well remove the binaries as well for that RC. Do you run Apache Rat on the RC before
calling a vote? While it's not perfect it will pick up issues like this.

Other IPMC members may have different views, if there's a few +1 (ie other IPMC members think
it's ok) I'll change my vote.
