[cross-project-issues-dev] Kepler's final staging repository is complete

Here we are, at (near) the end of RC4 already! EPP packages will be complete in a day or two.
Everyone, and especially anyone who pushed changes late in the day, should confirm the staging repo contains what you expect it to.

The final repo-reports are available at the usual place:

For those of you with "missing legal files" ... it is between you and the EMO if they will grant an exception for the release.
I know of only one project that as requested it (bug 401273).

As for other things, such as unsigned jars, technically you should work with your PMC and planning representative to ask for exceptions,
but suspect if you have not done so by now, it's simply a matter that you don't care. But, if you do, the reference is
Beyond that, I'll leave it up to the rest of the Planning Council to raise objections if they think any violations are so egregious it deserves discussing whether or not to included in the common repo.

Remember that as we enter "quiet week" we do NOT promote the builds to their usual place,  since to do so is basically making the release available early.
The purpose of "quiet week" is partially to allow adopters to do final acceptance testing, but to also serve as a buffer in case a build is required -- but, rebuilds are very risky, and rare, so has to be an especially bad bug (such as one which prevents install or update from working, or perhaps where one project prevents another project from working).
Otherwise, the extra time is for projects to prepare "hot fix" feature patches to be available from their own project repositories.

If you like to read wordy, but possibly educational, documents, don't forget about

Thanks everyone. Good luck with your final testing and wrap-up.
