Does the project have permission to distribute this data from the copyright owners? (If so
I would of also expected the owners to be aded to the LICENSE file, assuming that is the content
is obtainable under an Apache compatible license in the first place.)
>> One possible solution to make a release without the test data. The files in question
may also be required to be removed from Apache hosted version control. I'm not a lawyer and
it may be best to ask legal-discuss@ for advice on what to do here.
