Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache FreeMarker 2.3.25 (incubating)
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:41:35 GMT

+1 binding

I checked:
- files name contain incubating
- signatures and hashes correct
- NOTICE and LICENSE ok, although NOTICE contains text that should be in LICENSE. It’s also
not clear to me if the text in NOTICE is referring to Apache FreeMarker or some previous version
of FreeMarker.
- all ASF licensed source file have Apache headers
- no unexpected binary files
- can compile from source

May be a good idea to:
- To sign the release wth an email address. This was mentioned last release I’m
not sure that something signed by a address gives me any confidence.
- Fix the copyright year in [1] (and at the same time replace the reference to
with an Apache URL.)

Just out of interest why does the README start with this? i.e. direct the user to an non Apache
URL for downloads/reporting bugs?
