Here's my +1

Source, LICENSE/NOTICE, RAT, signature/checksum -- all look good to me.

Seem to recall a discussion on this before, but just to be sure. Apache 
releases source code. PMC's vote on source releases. Many ASF projects also 
have binary distributions (which a PMC also evaluates and uses in evaluating 
the correctness of the release). The binaries are also convenient for many 
users. So, you end up with source and binary distributions of a project.

There is no VCL binary/compilation (that I know of). So, the VCL release is a 
*source* release. One thing to note is that we don't maintain dojo in svn (we 
could do so).
