Rather than wait for the RC - thought I have a quick look in advance:

1) NOTICE file
I've updated the copyright year in the NOTICE file to 2007

IMO would be good to run a CLIRR report for changes between 1.0 and
1.1 when you produce the RC - its helpful so that anyone
reviewing/voting on the RC can be satisfied whether this release is
binary compatible with the 1.0 release.

3) Release Notes
Release notes need to be done for 1.1 (RELEASE-NOTES.txt still
reflects 1.0). As well as changes, a statement on compatibility with
the previous release would be good - also I'm guessing that the
minimum java version has changed from JDK 1.3 to JDK 1.4 in this
release - if that is the case then it would also be good to state that
in the release notes.

4) Building Page
The building page on the Email site still reflects maven1 and needs to
be updated for maven 2

Other than that looks in pretty good shape to me.
