Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Ranger 0.5.0 (incubating)
Date Tue, 09 Jun 2015 17:52:47 GMT

Thanks for looking into this. The MPL license was used by pnotify. We
removed it as part of JIRA, but we didn¹t update the
LICENSE.txt file. Is it okay to remove the license text from the file
during our next release or is it a blocker for this release? I have
created JIRA to track it.

We will also address your rest of your concerns during our next release. I
have created the following JIRA to track it
