This release includes Category X software (which is incompatible with ALv2) and it's not following
the terms of the GPL license. While this thread [12] indicates incubating releases can include
Category X they still need to follow the terms of the included licenses.  This is also dependent
on the incubator being “special” and it releases allowed to not confirm to policy (unlike
other TLP projects) this is this still as yet to be confirmed/allowed.

I checked:
- incubating in name
- disclaimer exists
- LICENSE has a few minor issues
- NOTICE is fine
- Includes Category X licensed software [4] It also looks like these files [6][7][8][9] come
from [10][11] and are also GPL licensed.
- No unexpected binary files
- A few source files (.sh and piton scripts) are missing headers (how I came across [4]),
would be good to add them.
In LICENSE I noticed that:
- This file [1] is under ALv2 but they have modified the license [2] and added an extra condition
(top of file) so may not be ALv2 compatible. Please check with legal discuss.
- There files seem to have incorrect headers [1][3] as they have not been licensed to the
ASF. I believe they should have the AL 3rd party header.
- The license mentions the ProgPoW algorithm but it unclear where it’s being used. I assume
here [5] but there's nothing in that file that indicate it contains 3rd party code or that
it’s CC0 licensed.
