Remember 72 hours is not a time-out, but a minimum period to wait. :)

My vote: +1 (binding)

+1 gpg signatures verified
+1 sha512 checksums correct
+1 git commit matches -src.tgz 
+1 Release archive has -incubating in filename
-1 Maven versions of submodules do NOT have -incubator or
+1 Maven repo checksum matches binaries in dist
+0 src/bin DISCLAIMER present, but it says  "sponsored by Incubator" instead of
   "sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC."
+1 bin zip vs .tar.gz
+1 bin LICENSE - very good! 
+1 bin NOTICE 
+0 mvn clean package mostly builds (see below)

build fails in apm-webapp because

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-checkstyle-plugin:2.17:check

This is fixed by using "mvn install" instead within apm-checkstyle

I strongly recommend using suffixes like -RC1 in the release candidate
URL and tag -- how do voters (and anyone checking the vote later) know if you
happened to make a 'second 5.0.0-beta' release candidate?  

For that reason the VOTE email should also include 
svn revision number from, and/oor sha checksum of the
files under vote.  

Assuming r26864 (from "svn log") aka sha512 checksums

Should be v5.0.0-beta-RC1 (or later) while under vote, and then re-tagged once
vote has been accepted.

(while incubating) please, include the URL of the git repository, particularly
as skywalking is for some reason not in

and git submodules
 c02c12af12116121e25155d1f3fca0fadee5f2e9 apm-protocol/apm-network/src/main/proto (v1.1.1)
 43ae106a15a77937a255c790a478c620b549d742 skywalking-ui (v5.0.0-alpha-44-g43ae106)

which means that
is also covered by this release vote. 
But 43ae106a15a77937a255c790a478c620b549d742 in skywalking-ui does not have a corresponding
tag there.
Presumably a v5.0.0-beta tag will be added there after successful vote.

Very good, thank you!
