Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Hivemall (Incubating) v0.5.0-RC2
Date Mon, 29 Jan 2018 23:57:00 GMT

Sorry it -1 from me as there is compiled code in the sure release. [1]

I checked:
- incubating in name
- signatures and hashes fine
- LICENSE is missing several things including the licence appendix and licenses of included
software [2]
- NOTICE has some issues
- File have ASF header but there’s some files that header have been added where IMO they
should not of been [8][9]
- unexpended binary in source release [1]
- could compile core

Including instructions on how to build from source in the release would be useful.

The source software bundles several bits of software from other projects and these need to
be mentioned in LICENSE. Please ask for help from your mentors in fixing this and read this
[2]. From what I can see LICENSE is missing:
- MIT and OFL license font awesome [4][5]
- public domain code included in this file [6]
- this BSD licensed file [7] which also incorrectly has an ASF header
- you may or may not want to list other ALv2 pieces of software as well

For the NOTICE the information about relocated copyrights IMO is not correct and should be
removed as you want to keep NOTICE files as small as possible. Relocated copyright are usually
those relocated to NOTICE as part of a software grant. For instance this file [3] has incorrectly
both an ASF header and another Apache license  header and is mentioned as a file who’s header
has been relocated in NOTICE. IMO just keep the file’s original header, don’t add an Apache
one and there is no need to put anything in NOTICE.

Also please put the actual year not "Copyright 2016 and onwards” in the NOTICE file.
