That would be until
the vote passes, after which it gets moved over to release.

Unfortunately I can't seem to commit anything to dist svn right now
myself either. I'll ping infra.

One thing I should tell you is that you may be facing frustration
because you may be forced to create a second candidate because of
seemingly minor issues. Usually it's the legal stuff that causes
problems (and is the real reason we have release votes).

I already see the first one, the binary zip lacks the required LICENSE
and NOTICE files. Sorry.

Another thing that I'm, afraid have have gone unnoticed may be files
that lack the license headers. I think I should be able to identify and
fix most of them using RAT, are you building from the master branch or
is it a different branch?

So we could address the newer icu release with a subsequent beta? Sounds
good to me.
