      Description

      Release 0.6.0 is including the Voldemort jar w/o the required notices as specified by section 4d of the ASL2.0
      https://github.com/voldemort/voldemort/blob/master/LICENSE

      Additionally Voldemort requires a "category X" licensed work which is not allowed by Apache rules, specifically Voldemort uses "BDB java edition" which is category X. See previous discussions on this:
      https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-99
      https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-113
      http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html

      The following has to happen before 0.7.0:

      1) remove all jars from the source release artifact.

      ./services/voldemort/lib/linkedin-voldemort-0.90.RC3.jar

      I also notice:
      ./services/hadoop/lib/hadoop-test-0.20.3-SNAPSHOT.jar
      ./services/cassandra/lib/apache-cassandra-0.7.0.jar
      ./services/cassandra/lib/libthrift-0.5.jar

      2) do not compile or include dependencies of Voldemort as part of any Whirr release, whether source or binary. I do not think that the Voldemort whirr service itself need be dropped.
