My reading of the asf release policy on licensing is that folks
shouldn't have to dig to find the relevant materials.

"start here" is not a pointer to a specific file with the relevant
text, which is the only option for not including directly in the
LICENSE file I've seen expressly stated as acceptable in the past.

Agreed that this should get fixed but need not be a blocker.

I'll file JIRAs for both issues, but the first one is still a blocker
for me, though I can understand why other folks might still vote +1.
