KEYS file:

Apache NetBeans Git Repo tag: 10.0-vc5 :

Note: NetBeans license violation checks are managed via the rat-exclusions.txt file:

Rat report shows no unknown licenses, except for license files:

Included as a convenience binary, not relevant for the voting purposes (unzip it, run it and
you'll see Apache NetBeans):

Release specific wiki page: How (and what) to
try out the release:

1. Download the artifact to be voted on and unzip it.
2. Verify the cryptographic signatures, the NOTICE and LICENSE file
3. Build it using the README provided by the artifact.
4. Look in nbbuild/netbeans for the NetBeans installation created by the build process.
5. Run the NetBeans executable and (if you're running on JDK 8) you'll be prompted to install
nb-javac, after agreeing to its licensing terms, and (if you're running on JDK 9+), you'll
be able to use javac directly from JDK 9 and, optionally, you'll be prompted to install nb-javac,
after agreeing to its licensing terms. As this is our first multi purpose (Java SE, PHP, JS,
Groovy) release, some features has to be enabled in Tools > Plugins > Installed tab,
or get's automatically enabled on first use of a feature.

If the above succeeds, i.e., Apache NetBeans installs and starts up vote +1 in this thread.

Please try out the package, using the instructions above, and vote!

[ ] +1 Release this package as Apache NetBeans 10.0 (incubating)
[ ] 0 I don't feel strongly about it, but I'm okay with the release
[ ] -1 Do not release this package because...
