I'm not saying that the license is incompatible, I am saying that you
need to record third party contributions in the NOTICE file.

See
http://apache.org/licenses/example-NOTICE.txt
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/jackrabbit/trunk/NOTICE.txt
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/trunk/NOTICE.txt
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/james/server/trunk/NOTICE.txt
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/hadoop/hbase/trunk/NOTICE.txt
and probably many, many others

Hi Bernd, we do have a notice file similar to your examples (actually we have at least 5 of them) included in the release. I looked at these examples you've included and I don't see any mention of autotools related files (like configure).

PS: I don't think it is particulary nice to close a vote when there
are ongoing discussions.

You stated the following in your original email "I guess it is not safe to release this as-is.". You didn't -1 the vote and you are implicitly saying that you don't know and are just guessing. You don't point to any supporting evidence for this statement such as explicit requirements from Apache. Additionally I followed up immediately with our PMC chair and he said this was not an issue. I then responded to your email.

I will double check with Owen on this and ask him to comment on the thread. If you could point to a specific apache document stating this requirement that would help alot. This is a critical fix release that we are trying to get out so resolving this ASAP is imperative.

Hi,

There is foreign code in the release tar ball, which is not attributed
to in the top-level LICENSE/NOTICE file.
see for example
 src/c/configure
So I guess it is not safe to release this as-is.

It would be nice if the release artifacts would be named
 apache-zookeeper...
but this more my personal taste than a requirement.
