Some suggestions and potential issues when it hits the incubator PMC  

(looking at the source tarball)

1) Consider putting all the parts in a directory rather than have the  
tarball unpack into the current working directory

2) Consider explaining about the incubation status in the README.  
Generally we like the status to be prominent for users, in this case

	brianm@golem:/tmp/qpid$ grep -ir incubat *
	RELEASE_NOTES.txt:Apache Incubator Qpid Java M1 Release Notes

    it isn't very prominent.

3) The Exolab JMS Compliance Test Suite might not be okay to include  
in the distro as it is listed as (c) and all rights reserved. There  
is a file in src/java/client/test/lib/jmscts/license.jmscts.txt which  
implies that not all rights are, in fact reserved.

4) Where is the Jython license? (not referenced in LICENSE.txt like  
others) It may not be relevant as I don't see Jython anywhere in the  
actual distro, but it is listed as included in the NOTICE.txt

5) The build failed for me:
   brianm@golem:/tmp/qpid/src/java$ ant
   ... snipped ...
        [copy] Warning: /private/tmp/qpid/src/java/cluster/bin not  
        [copy] Warning: /private/tmp/qpid/src/java/cluster/etc not  

   /private/tmp/qpid/src/java/build.xml:46: The following error  
occurred while executing this line:
   /private/tmp/qpid/src/java/build.xml:38: Invalid file: /private/ 

Glad to see a release candidate so soon!
