Subject Re: License headers on test data (was Re: [VOTE] Release Apache NetBeans 9.0 Beta (incubating) rc2)

Indeed, we will pull out those exclusions into a separate file[1],
however, as can be seen, that comment is already there.

You're saying the comment isn't needed in the README then, good if so,
since that would mean less to do, though what needs to be done to
resolve the issue[2] or is it resolved by the fact that the comment
(see line 2105) is already there? I.e., can NETBEANS-306 be closed as
