Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache brpc(incubating) 0.9.7-rc02
Date Fri, 03 Jan 2020 01:04:56 GMT

Some of us are not guys :-)

I’m -1 (binding) for three reasons:
- the artefact names must include "incubating “ but this can be easily fixed and the voting
doesn’t need to restarted (if this was the only issue)
- but it also contains category B code [2] under the CDDL license.
- and it also contains category X code [9] under the GPL license.

you may want to consider using the work in progress disclaimer while you sort these issues
out. [11]

I checked:
- incubating not in name
- LICENSE is missing appendix
- NOTICE year needs to be updated
- Source release contains category B code which is not allowed [2]
- Source release contains Category X software which is not allowed. [9]
- All ASF source files have ASF headers
- No unexpected binary files

I did a spot check on licenses in LICENSE and it look like it missing a few things:
- SVGPan library 1.2 Copyright 2009-2010 Andrea Leofredd contain within [3]
- This file written by Colin Plumb 
- Supporting functions within this file by Dean Edwards of unknown license.
- Code Copyright (c) 2006-2013 Alexander Chemeris in these files [6][7]
- MPEG2 transport stream  Copyright (c) 2003 Fabrice Bellard in his file. [8] This is category
X and can’t be included in a source release.
- This file [10] is list as copyright Tencent when it actually Copyright (c) 2013, The TOFT
