Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Metamodel 4.0.0 incubating
Date Tue, 14 Jan 2014 05:07:31 GMT
Hi Ankit and other Metamodel developers,

Congrats on getting this far with your first release so far.  Here's a few
questions and concerns:

The NOTICE file should only have what's needed.  In your git repo, the last 3
lines I don't think should be there.  The NOTICE file in the source jar files
look better though.  More info on brevity:
 However, the NOTICE files in the source jar files do not have "Apache" or
"incubating" in the Metamodel name.  (If you do re-spin this release you can
bump 2013 to 2014 at that point too - I do realize you started this release in
2013, no problem)

The *.asc.md5 and *.asc.sha1 files are hashes of PGP signatures and seem
unnecessary to me.  Not a blocker, but I wouldn't bother creating them for
future releases.  Less unnecessary files to look at is better.

I see your PGP key is at
too.  Good.

I am not familiar with policies specifically for maven .jar releases.  I would
think the DISCLAIMER file would still be required. doesn't mention it, but
wouldn't it be appropriate in META-INFO alongside LICENSE and NOTICE?  Perhaps
someone else can shed some light on this.
