I also changed fortress-core and fortress-realm. I removed all 3rd party
licenses from lib folders and put the default NOTICE file.

I think the 3rd party licenses and additional notices are not required
because for these two projects we only distrbute the source which only
includes our own ALv2 sources, and the binaries based on the source. For
core and realm we don't distribute any package that includes any 3rd
party dependency.

Please correct me if my assumption is wrong.
