A common problem is that rat exclusions are set too wide and in this case it looks like they
have been. Can you point me to the exclusion file I can’t see it in the source release.

IMO there are still a number of serious issue (LICENSE missing licenses, category B issues
and source release contains compiled source code) so my vote would still be -1 on this release
because of those. But my vote is just one vote and is not a veto, other IPMC members (including
your mentors) can vote +1 on this and if you get 3 +1’s and more +1s than -1s then it’s
a release.
