Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Trafodion (incubating) 1.3.0-incubating (RC4)
Date Thu, 19 Nov 2015 02:28:31 GMT

Sorry -1 Due to license and copyright issues and possible crypto issue.

I checked:
- artefact contains incubating
- signature and hashes good
- LICENSE is missing a couple of things/has a few issues
- NOTICE is good but may be missing thing form other Apache bundled software
- rat exclusions bay be a bit wide
- no unexpected binaries in release
- while most source file have Apache headers there are serval issues with copyright owners
and multiple headers in files
- didn’t compile as the build process looks rather difficult

If OpenSSL is being bundled has this process been followed? [8] I’m not familiar with the
process and it may not apply here. Can someone who more familiar with this please comment.

LICENSE issues:
- License implies that all BSD licensed software is "Copyright (c) 2008-2010, Allan Jardine”
which is not the case. Each piece of licensed software will have it’s own owner.
- missing MIT licensed Asciidoctor [1]
- Jquery UI is MIT licensed not BSD [2]
- missing MIT license MooTools Framework [3]
- missing BSD style OpenSSL license [4]
- missing MIT JavaScript InfoVis Toolkit license [5]
- missing MIT JQuery license [6]
- And while the code under [7] is MIT it's not copyright SpryMedia Ltd
- missing license for CSS Document by Codify Design Studio [15] How is this file  licensed?

Also this file [9] is marked as copyright ASF but contains  other possible copyright owners:
<!--Arbortext, Inc., 1988-2014, v.4002—>
<copyright><year>2015</year><holder>Hewlett-Packard Development Company,

I also count 480+ incidences where copyright Hewlett-Packard in mentioned. There are also
multiple files that are marked copyright e.g. [10], copyright Open Software
Foundation e.g. [11]

There are also a large number of files that have double copyright headers e.g. [12]. 

And finally there is an assortment of years for Apache licensed software. As the project hasn’t
been incubating for that long I assume we have some other bundled Apache software? If so this
may effect NOTICE.

For instance:
 * Copyright 2007 The Apache Software Foundation
 * Copyright 2008 The Apache Software Foundation
 * Copyright 2009 The Apache Software Foundation
 * Copyright 2010 The Apache Software Foundation
 * Copyright 2011 The Apache Software Foundation
 * Copyright 2015 The Apache Software Foundation
