As a mentor, I feel metron is ready to graduate.

License reviews are done on a per release basis. What’s in your repo only matters when it
comes time to make a release. In other words, if you have some category-x code/dependency
in your repo, that’s fine, but needs to be corrected in order to release.

If your last release was affected by METRON-283 (had a compile time dependency of a cat-x
licensed artifact) I would recommend doing a point release.

I think you’re ready.
