source codes

   @daisy-ycguo @mrutkows In my opinion, all the license concerns raised in 
this issue come from the license under the files of test cases. I have 
submitted a PR to exclude the files of test cases out of the source code 
artifacts we are about to release. The test cases are used to guard the quality 
of the source code, and they do not play a part of the features of openwhisk we 
deliver. They do not contribute to the process to build the binaries and docker 
images either. The test cases are developer-orientated, not end 
user-orientated. 
   
   My suggestion is that we can tentatively skip all the licenses going through 
all the files of test cases for the release process.
   
   In future, if we still want to release the "test" separately, we can come 
over to tackle the licenses for test cases during the release process. However, 
this issue can leave us a probable low-priority issue, that whether it is 
worthy to think of license and avoid the unfriendly licenses, when we write new 
tests; whether we should rewrite the test cases with apache or apache friendly 
licenses.
