review. Can all developers please give their preferred sections a once over
for issues, e.g. to update any missing licences and check for any packaging
problems etc (whether they be inherent, or the result of my build
environment). Doing this now will help us expedite the release process once
the code is actually in shape for the 0.8 Release Candidate process to

RAT output from an extraction of the 'full release' archive is available at
http://people.apache.org/~robbie/qpid/0.7alpha1/rat_output.txt Please give
