I replied on the JIRA, but for completeness I'll paraphrase here.

It sounds like we have everything covered for NOTICE about the JackRabbit sources. I'd recommend
adding a comment to the copied files that points at VFS-611 so that in future reviews there's
an easy indicator that we've done due diligence.

Thanks everyone for taking care of this promptly!
