      Description

      One issue raised by the license review (PDFBOX-366) is the status of the various test PDF files included in the test directory. Many of these don't seem to come with a license that would permit redistribution within an Apache project, so our only option seems to be to remove or replace the files before we can make the first Apache release.

      The full list of potentially (I haven't looked at all of these in detail so some might be OK for us to keep) troublesome test files is:

      My suggestion is that (in line with PDFBOX-368) we create a new src/test/resources directory where we move all reviewed and accepted test cases. Once all these files have been reviewed, we just drop the remaining ones for which an acceptable license could not be found. It would be nice if replacements could be created for such test cases, but in some cases (special PDF constructs, etc.) that might be a bit troublesome so I guess we'll just need to live with some reduction in test coverage due to this.
