+1 on the assumption that future release will fix up the header situation

I checked:
- signatures good
- LICENSE is missing some BSD licensed software
- NOTICE contains too many copyright lines, copyright lines should not be in NOTICE unless
they are from relocated headers [5]
- Unknown if all files have correct headers or not (700+ files without Apache headers) with
only 16 files have Apache headers
- No unexpected binary files
- Can compile from source

LICENSE is missing info on:
- BSD licensed software copyright 2011-2012, Florian Schoppmann [2]
- BSD license software copyright 2004, 2015 Sandia Corporation. [3]
- BSD licensed software copyright 2011 Clement Creusot [4]

Given the large number of missing headers it’s extremely difficult to review this release,
it is impossible to know if an individual file without a header is BSD or Apache licensed.
Going forward to know if a file is missing an Apache header you would need to compare it with
the previous release which is hardly ideal. Hopefully the legal discussion will come to some
conclusion / consensus and the header situation can be resolved in future releases.

A couple of minor things:
- consider signing with an apache email address
- may want to double check copyright line in this file [1]
