Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Sanselan 0.96
Date Sat, 17 Jan 2009 18:53:36 GMT
I have created a JIRA ticket for some minor build improvements[1]:
 * Add standard manifest entries to jar
 * Lock down version numbers for maven compiler, surefire and javadoc plugins
 * generate sources jar for the release
 * include the RELEASE-NOTES in the binary distribution
 * include NOTICE/LICENSE files in the javadoc jar

One issue I found when building from trunk was that Sanselan isn't JDK
1.4 compatible in one class - created a JIRA ticke[2]t for that -
leave it up to you how important that is

The other thing that seems odd to me are the contents of the info.txt
files which the RAT report highlights. To a simple mind like me either
the whole of Sanselan is released under the Apache License or there
should be something else in the LICENSE/NOTICE files. The contents of
these info files makes me wonder about what rights someone would have.

Does "I hereby put them in the public domain" mean - for example:

Also looking at the following file looks like it should be in LICENSE/NOTICE
