Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Joshua 6.1 RC#2
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2016 01:40:57 GMT

Sorry but it’s -1 (binding) as:
- Your missing incubating in the release artefacts name. [1]
- There are a number of binary files in the source release that look to be compiled source

I checked:
- name doesn’t include incubating
- signatures and hashes correct
- LICENSE is missing a few things (see below)
- a source file is missing an Apache header [7]
- Several unexpected binary files are contained in the source release [8][9][10][11]
- Can compile from source

License is missing:
- MIT licensed normalize.css v3.0.3 bundled in [5]
- glyph icon fonts [6]

Not an issue but it's a little odd to have LICENSE and NOTICE.txt - usually both are bare
or both have .txt extension.

Also while looking at your site I noticed that the download links of you incubating site [2]
points to github, please change to point to the offical release area.
Also the 6.1 release has already been tagged and it available for public download on github
[4]  before this vote is finished. This is IMO against Apache release policy [3] please remove.

I also notice you recently released the language packs (18th Nov) but there doesn’t seem
to have been a vote for that? Any reason for this?
