Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Ranger 0.6.0 (incubating) - rc1
Date Fri, 15 Jul 2016 13:27:26 GMT
+1 (binding)

Review focused on the source release mechanics specifically around

Signature checks out w/SHA512
Hashes all check out
Verified last meaningful commit in specific tag found in source.
Full clean build as per instructions found in readme worked perfectly.

[Minor - for next release - might not be true]
In source LICENSE.  "This product includes json2.js
( - Public Domain license)
by Douglas Crockford".  Should be in notice.  This doesn't alter the
LICENSE but is worth referencing in the NOTICE as per attribution
guidance in
which refers to

[Minor - for next release - might not be true]
In source LICENSE.  "This product includes Font Awesome 3.2.1
( - SIL Open Font License (OFL) licensee) by
Dave Gandy"
This should be in the NOTICE and not LICENSE.  Such a dependency
(Category B) should only be a binary dependency unless in source
release it meets this exception "small amounts of source that is
directly consumed by the ASF product at runtime in source form, and
for which that source is unmodified and unlikely to be changed anyway
(say, by virtue of being specified by a standard), inclusion of
appropriately labeled source is also permitted" as stated in

[Minor - for next release]
In source license several references are made to ASL V2 items.  These
references belong in NOTICE and only if there is information worth
carrying forward.  The Copyright is good to include so those belong in

[Minor - for next release]
In source LICENSE.  The 'visualsearch license' is referenced.  This
should say something like
  "This product bundles 'VisualSearch.js 0.4.0' which is available
under an MIT style license." then include license text w/copyright.
Or just put it up in the already present MIT license listing you have.

[Minor - for next release]
In source license.  The requires-handlebar-plugin.  As per text at
bottom of readme
  Nice job catching the 'handlebars.js' listing and putting under MIT
licenses (with proper copyright) and the 'require.js'.
  But, it appears the require.js listing under MIT licenses has
incorrect copyright.  It should be "Copyright (c) 2010-2012, The Dojo
Foundation All Rights Reserved." as found in
for example.
