There are quite a few files without AL headers.
Some are generated Java files, which is OK, but there are some scripts
and other files which could and should have AL headers (assuming that
they are ASF files).

For example:


If the file is very short (e.g. one-line css file) there is no need to
add the header.

Not a blocker, but it does make checking releases harder: a lot of the
source files have

@version $Revision: nnn $, $Date: xxx $

The Date field is Locale-dependent, so my checkout of the SVN tag does
not agree with the checkout you used to create the source archive.

If you really want to see a date, use $Id: $; otherwise keep the
$Revision: $ and drop the $Date: $

Not a blocker, but the description uses Commons Configuration as a
noun; for trademark purposes it needs to be used as an adjective, at
least initially.

For example:

The Commons Configuration software library provides a generic configuration ...

Missing AL headers.

Release otherwise looks OK, and builds/tests using Java 1.4 with Maven 2.2.1.
