Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Groovy 2.4.4-incubating
Date Mon, 13 Jul 2015 12:12:35 GMT

-1 (binding) as LICENSE and NOTICE have issues, included files which have Apache header 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.

For the source release I checked:
- signatures ok but should be signed by address
- hashes good
- LICENSE and NOTICE have issues (see below)
- No unexpected binaries in source release
- All source files have Apache header
- Probably my setup/config but unable to compile from source and get this error:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
* Where:
Script '/Users/justinmclean/Downloads/ApacheGroovy/groovy-2.4.4/gradle/asciidoctor.gradle'
line: 19
* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating script.
> Could not create task of type 'AsciidoctorTask'.

 LICENSE and NOTICE issues:
- NOTICE contains items that are not required (as they are not bundled) and it’s not in
usual format
- LICENSE is missing:
	- MIT licensed see /src/spec/assets/css/style.css
	- MIT licensed normalize.css (in two places)
	- BSD licensed FileNameCompleter.groovy which also has an Apache header
- LICENSE also contains several licenses/items that are not bundled and so shouldn’t be
included e.g. ANTLR 2, ASM 4, Hamcrest, JLine, JSR223, JUnit, Multiverse 

For binary releases:
- All are missing DISCLAIMER, LICENSE and NOTICE

Other issues:
- release candidate not in correct place
- not signed by address
- Short form of bundled licenses are preferred to long version
- all zips unzip to same directory
