Hi, Bertrand Thank you for the inputs.
My original thought was to maintain different Rat exclusions for different repo because they may have different files. If we want to maintain a unique version, we may need to collect all exclusions in all the repo together and maintain a set. Sometimes it's difficult to tell whether a file shall be excluded or not. Hope you can help review after the collection is ready. OpenWhisk has a repo in github to track release documents and scripts. Here it is: https://github.com/apache/incubator-openwhisk-release/blob/master/README.md. I think these information can be documented here: https://github.com/apache/incubator-openwhisk-release/blob/master/docs/work_items.md#2-verify-the-compliance-of-the-source-code-open-issue.

What you want basically is that for any build that's meant to create a release: -Rat should run -The build should fail if Rat reports any anomalies -The Rat exclusions should ideally be defined in the same way for all modules, for consistency -The Rat exclusions should be commented to indicate why each exclusion (or family of exclusions) is here I think this should be documented in a "coding standards" or "release management" page, does OpenWhisk have this already? -Bertrand (with my incubation mentor hat on)
