Re: [VOTE] Apache Kafka Release 0.8.0 - Candidate 3
+0 overall. The quality of the build seems good, but I have a few minor

1) java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError in

$ ./bin/kafka-simple-consumer-perf-test.sh
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
     at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:202)
     at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
     at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:190)
     at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:306)
     at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Launcher.java:301)
     at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)

looks like the perf classes are not included. Maybe this script should
be removed? Or we should include the perf sub-project.

2) No README or INSTALL in the binary dist

3) Missing LICENSE and NOTICE at the top level, aren't these required
for an Apache release?

4) Artifact name - not sure on Apache's policy, but should it be

Regarding the actual build, I started up with the bin script, produced a
few messages, consumed a few, and then ran the integration tests from
kafka-python against it. Everything seems good here.
