+1 (binding) There are some flaky tests which are listed below but I don't think they are release blockers.
I performed the following checks: Binary convenience artifact: * Signature and checksums match * LICENSE, NOTICE, and README.md files in the binary convenience artifact look accurate and complete relative to the jars in lib/ * Ran a very quick test with the binary artifact and it worked: ./bin/flume-ng agent -c conf -f conf/flume-conf.properties.template -n agent -Dflume.root.logger=DEBUG,console * Checked that the documentation in docs/ renders: Flume User Guide and Flume Dev Guide are OK. Also spot-checked that the new Kafka security documentation was included in the User Guide Source artifact: * Signature and checksums match * Built Flume from the source artifact using Oracle 1.7.0_80 on Ubuntu Linux 16.04, sanity tested the resulting binary using the above method and it worked * RAT checks passed * Built a new source artifact out of the official source artifact and compiled it * I ran the unit tests. Most passed but the below two failed. These are flaky tests (we have a bunch of them in Flume) so I think it's fine not to block the release on them. * TestExecSource.testMonitoredCounterGroup - looks like a racy test * TestSpillableMemoryChannel - didn't investigate RC2 looks good to me. Thanks for running this release, Donat!
