Binary Distributions
What applies to canonical source distributions also applies to all redistributions, including
binary redistributions:

Any redistribution must obey the licensing requirements of the contents.

The best way to do that will likely depend on the binary packaging form.

When assembling binary distributions, it is common to pull in and bundle additional dependencies
which are not bundled with the source distribution. These additional dependencies must be
accounted for in LICENSE and NOTICE.

As a result, the LICENSE and NOTICE files for a binary distribution may well differ from those
in the source distribution it was built from.

In any case, the principle remains the same: LICENSE and NOTICE must exactly represent the
contents of the distribution they reside in.

I interpret this as " we must maintain and include a LICENSE/NOTICE per bundle as well. Some
may use a generic variant, some may be specific. Is that correct? The current build does not
include any LICENSE/NOTICE into the bundles.

> During the vote for 0.8.1-incubator on the mailing list, in the discussion thread, there
were some improvements suggested to a few of the NOTICE and LICENSE files. For reference,
see . This task is there so we don't forget to
make those improvements before our next release.
