Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache AsterixDB Hyracks 0.2.16-incubating
Date Wed, 09 Sep 2015 09:54:50 GMT
Hi team,

Sorry for chiming in so late, and to be clear I haven't had time to do an actual 
review of the release candidate(s) yet.

But one specific issue is I think important to point out concerning "we don't 
need the NOTICE file".

For ASF releases a NOTICE file is ALWAYS required, and as a minimum "includes a 
copyright and attribution statement for The Apache Software Foundation".

For further info, and everything related/required for a incubator release, see:

And for ASF release policy requirements in general:

I'll try to find hopefully some time later this week for a proper review from a 
policy/requirements perspective (I cannot attest to have the technical knowledge 
(yet) for a functional validation/review).

Regards, Ate
