-1 for the release of incubating-netbeans-java-9.0-rc1-source.zip for
now due to the below open issue.
sha1=a1a265455c8246f849b14982fa3c36b351b21876

As mentioned, the rc1-rc1 naming is very confusing, for future
releases I suggest using different suffixes, maybe rc1-vc1 for "Voting
Candidate 1 of rc1". Does not prevent releasing but inconvenient.

I have not looked at the convenience binaries.

I have created https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NETBEANS-851
"About box and splash screen don't say "Apache"" - not urgent.

Open issue:
A number of licenses mentioned in the LICENSE file are not mentioned
at https://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html, have they been cleared
and if so do we have URLs of those clearances or discussions?

That's the following licenses:
ISO-8879-SGML
EDL-1.0
W3C2
OASIS
WSDL-2004

Here's what I checked and is ok:
Signatures verify after importing the 1CCF4647 key from
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/netbeans/KEYS

SHA1 digests match.

DISCLAIMER and NOTICE look good to me.

nbbuild/rat-exclusions.txt is quite big for my taste but well documented.

I didn't find any problematic binary files in the archive, although
they are many of them, using the "file" command to analyze them, at
https://gist.github.com/bdelacretaz/fa48de8edd0e2fd0ac8c5517c1b615b7

Build with "ant" passes
Build with "ant tryme" starts the IDE.
Build with "ant rat" passes.

I will change to a +1 if the above open issue is resolved.
