I did find some minor issues though, please see below.
I would really suggest to start maintaining a RELEASE_NOTES file. I usually have a look at
this in order to see what to expect of the new release.


[OK] Download all staged artifacts under the url specified in the release vote email into
a directory we’ll now call download-dir.
[MINOR] Verify the signature is correct: Additional Apache tutorial on how to verify downloads
can be found here.
	- No trusted Key-chain (might think about going to a key-signing party) 
[OK] Check if the signature references an Apache email address.
[OK] Verify the SHA512 hashes:
[OK] Unzip the archive:
the extracted source bundle.
[OK] Verify the content of LICENSE, NOTICE, README, RELEASE_NOTES files in the extracted source
[OK] Run RAT externally (without any exclusions) to ensure there are no surprises.
[OK] Search for SNAPSHOT references:
[MINOR] Search for Copyright references, and if they are in headers, make sure these files
containing them are mentioned in the LICENSE file.
	- Some files listed in LICENSE moved from daffodil-test/src/test/resources/org/apache/daffodil/ibm-tests/
to daffodil-test-ibm1/src/test/resources/test-suite/ibm-contributed/ without being updated
in the LICENSE file
		- dpaspc7131.dfdl.xsd
		- dpaspc7132.dfdl.xsd
		- dpaspc7132_2.dfdl.xsd
[OK] Build the project according to the information in the file.

    Subject: [VOTE] Release Apache Daffodil (incubating) 2.7.0-rc2

    The Apache Daffodil community has voted and approved the proposed
    release of Apache Daffodil (incubating) 2.7.0-rc2.

    We now kindly request the Incubator PMC members review and vote on this
    incubator release.

    Daffodil is an open source implementation of the DFDL specification that
    uses DFDL schemas to parse fixed format data into an infoset, which is most
    commonly represented as either XML or JSON. This allows the use of
    well-established XML or JSON technologies and libraries to consume,
    inspect, and manipulate fixed format data in existing solutions. Daffodil
    is also capable of the reverse by serializing or "unparsing" an XML or JSON
    infoset back to the original data format.
