Is this true? I realize the following document has still (after 18
months) not yet been made official ASF policy, but in the absence of
any other then there are two sections which seem relevant:
 - System Requirements
 - Optional Add-ons
http://people.apache.org/~rubys/3party.html#options-systemrequirements

If for example we have component which can use 3rd Party work that
comes under the "excluded licenses" (from memory I think VFS did this)
then we have an obligation to inform the users of this and the NOTICE
file seems an appropriate place to do this. Having the dependencies
and their licenses listed seems like a *good thing* to me for users to
be confident of all the licensing implications of using a distro.
Anyway if theres contention on the format of the NOTICE in this
release then we should ask on legal-discuss to see if we can get an
answer whether its valid or not. I will try to do this later but I'm
going out soon - so hopefully someone else will beat me to it.
