Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Geode (incubating) 1.0.0-incubating.M1
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2016 06:06:54 GMT

+0.5 for the license issues and unable to compile. Willing to change to +1 if these are sorted
in the next release/explained.

I checked:
- file name contain incubating
- signatures and hashes good
- NOTICE looks OK
- LICENSE is missing a few items (see below). Everything listed in bundled.
- All source files have Apache headers (that need it)
- No unexpected binary in the source release
- I think COMPILING.txt needs some updating and current gradle fails with an error (see below)

License is missing:
- ANSIBuffer (BSD) [1]
- font awesome (front are SIL and css is MIT) [2]
- normalise.css (MIT) [3]
- bootstrap (MIT) [3]
- boot flat (MIT) [4]
- headjs (MIT) [5]
- iCheck (MIT) [6]
- html5shiv (MIT) [7]
- respond (MIT) [8]
- polyfill (MIT/BSD) [8]
- [9] contains code from BSD license protobuf that should be in

Compile fails with:
Could not GET ''.
Received status code 502 from server: Bad Gateway

It is unclear how [10] was original licensed has an apache header been put on this file by
mistake? It contains:
//  Created by Eric Zoerner on 2/13/08.
//  Copyright 2008 __MyCompanyName__. All rights reserved.

Do you have permission to use this file [11] which contains ("All Rights Reserved" generally
implies no).
Copyright (C) GemStone Systems, Inc. 2000-2004. All Rights Reserved.

This file [12] incorrectly has an Apache header and is licensed under an MX4J license [13].
While is permissive, it’s not "Apache like" as claimed. The is not list as a category A
license [14] so you probably need to raise a legal JIRA to get it added. It looks to me like
it requires attribution and would need to be listed in LICENSE.

Many java files under [15] contain double headers is this correct? 

Also this file [16] has a double header but this file [17] only has one header with the same
(non Apache) copyright owner and an non standard Apache header. This may need to be mentioned
in NOTICE? [18]

BTW the footer [19] conatins the wrong copyright year.

Several items in LICENSE refer to the generic BSD/MIT license, wouldn’t it be more useful
to point to the actual software license in question?

I didn't look at the binary release and there may be a couple of things I’ve missed from
a quick review.
