Hi Justin,

Thanks for the thorough review.

Is the following addition to NOTICE acceptable:

+++ b/NOTICE
@@ -4,3 +4,6 @@ Copyright (c) 2015 The Apache Software Foundation
 This product includes software developed at
 The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).

+The initial developer of the original code is
+Datatorrent, Inc. (http://www.datatorrent.com)
+Copyright (c) 2012 - 2015. All Rights Reserved.

The licence.txt file is actually used by the build tools to automatically
add the header to new files, so it is still needed.
