Subject Announce: Apache RAT Incubating 0.6
Date Fri, 10 Apr 2009 06:24:49 GMT
The Apache RAT team is proud to announce the availability of Apache RAT 0.6.

RAT (Release Audit Tool) is a tool, which is designed to verify the
compliance with legal policies. A typical use case would be the
presence of license headers in ASF projects.

RAT was initially developed as a Google project (see
http://code.google.com/p/arat/), but is now incubating as an Apache
project: This is the first version using the org.apache package
structure and related names. RAT users are strongly encouraged to
migrate, as the old Google version will no longer be maintained.

Disclaimer: Apache RAT is an effort undergoing incubation at The
Apache Software Foundation (ASF),  sponsored by the Incubator PMC.
Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects  until a further
review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision
 making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other
successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a
reflection of the completeness or stability  of the code, it does
indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
