If appropriately licensed binary font files used in documentation and the
system's web interfaces can't be included, then neither should image files
(.png, jpeg, etc).  To my knowledge, there's no established method for
bringing these files in during compilation/build, but I'll take a look at
for the next release.

Things you may want to consider changing for the next RC / release:

which is MIT (, bottom of page)

- is docs/Gemfile.lock needed?
It's part of our sources,used to build the docs, so yes. It defines the
dependency versions used to build the docs...

I'll open a JIRA to tiday up the other items in the list and we've already
changed the NOTICE file wording.  I'd like to continue with this VOTE if
the NOTICE is all that is of immediate concern. @sebb, you ok with this?
