Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache UIMA TextMarker Release Candidate 1
Date Fri, 25 Jan 2013 17:59:58 GMT
The binaries and the top level (release) sources look fine now, but I 
have a problem with the individual sources.

Can someone give me a hint how to get a customized LICENSE file into the 
sources in our build?
Or, a pointer how the LICENSE file is included by the 
maven-source-plugin. Anything I did was either ignored or overridden.
