* reduced javadoc and bundle warnings [UIMA-5982+UIMA-5979]

* cleanup files created during tests [UIMA-5980]

Changes RC1 -> RC2

* avoided several warnings in build process
* fixed language in jira-report

Major changes in this release:

UIMA Ruta Language and Analysis Engine:
* New language feature: label expressions at actions for directly
assigning/reusing newly created annotations. Example: Document{-> a:T1,
CREATE(T2, "ref" = a)};
* New language feature: new type of rule element for completely optional
match which does not require an existing annotation and therefore also
works at the boundary of a window/document. Example: NUM _{-PARTOF(CW)};
* Type lists can be used as matching condition.
* Initial default value of string and annotations variables is now null.
* Comparison of annotation and annotation list are now supported.
* New configuration parameter 'inferenceVisitors'.
* New configuration parameter 'maxRuleMatches'.
* New configuration parameter 'maxRuleElementMatches'.
* New configuration parameter 'rulesScriptName'.
* Inlined rules as condition are only evaluated if the rule element
match was successful.
* Multiple inlined rule blocks are allowed at one rule element.
* String features with allowed values are supported.
* PlainTextAnnotator supports vertical tabs.
* Various improvements for WORDTABLE.
* Thrown exceptions include script name.
* Fixed values of label for failed matches.
* Fixed inlined rules as condition at wildcards.
* Fixed resetting of annotation-based variables.
* Fixed various bugs of wildcards.
* Fixed CONTAINS condition for annotations overlapping the window.
* Fixed COUNT condition.
* Fixed setting variables by configuration parameter.

UIMA Ruta Workbench:
* Query View support more CAS formats.
