Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Drill 0.5.0-incubating release

Hi John,

Thanks for the feedback.  I'd like to respond to each of your concerns:

>>Your NOTICE file is missing MIT license.

The notice file states:  "Please see LICENSE for additional copyright and
licensing information." The LICENSE file contains the MIT license.

>>Your source file includes binaries in the sample-data directory.

These are small sample data files that are used to do various unit tests.
 They have been approved on both of our previous releases because of their
small size (<24k combined) and the fact that they are not source code.
 These are raw data files that happen to be binary in nature but are for
all purposes the same as example json files we include for testing purposes.

>> Ideally, your directory name should match the release version (0.5.0.rc2
vs 0.5.0)

The name of the release candidate directory is due to the nature of the
Apache voting process.  Each time we have a release candidate in the
community, we hold a vote.  We always maintain past release candidates so
that we can refer back to them.  All artifacts in the release candidate
hold the release/public names and will ultimately be hosted on the Apache
distribution servers at the appropriately named release directory.  For
historical perspective on this, see the following that has been our
strategy thus far:

our m1 release: (fail) (fail) (fail) (approved) -->
and distributed as

our 0.4.0 release: (fail) (approved) -->
distributed as

our 0.5.0 release: (fail) (fail) (pending)

As you can see, the rc numbers are only used during the voting process.
 Once we get approval from the incubator, we drop the rc so that external
consumers aren't confused by failed released candidates.

Hopefully this satisfies your concerns and you can vote +1 for our release.

thanks again for your feedback,
