Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Groovy 2.4.4-incubating
Date Mon, 13 Jul 2015 14:23:44 GMT

my +1 (Binding), for the source package.

Addressing Justin's issues :

There *are* issues, but considering the security issue fixed in this
release, I'd rather have this version out.

- The build scripts are failing because there are Windows file (^M at
the end of ech line). Removing them let you build the project. This has
to be fixed, though.
- NOTICE : not critical, IMO, but need to be fixed.
- LICENSE : I can't find the normalize.css file. The MIT & BSD license
should be added into LICENSE. The not bundled licenses should be removed.

All in all, there are issues, that need to be addressed, and I expect
them to be fixed in the next release.

Regarding the binary package, it has to contain the N&L files. I have
not checked it, because they are by-product, but that was a mistake
(obviously, people will use them instead of using the sources). I would
-1 the binary package as of today.

Thanks !

when they are licensed under other terms, and binary connivence files are missing required
files (i.e. DISCLAIMER, LICENSE and NOTICE) Note that the binary LICENSE and NOTICE file are
very likely different to the the source LICENSE and NOTICE files.
