Good question.  (Not sure if the “policy” is that this should be discussed on the [DISCUSS]
thread but since it’s been posted here…)

It’s not as simple as “if there’s an entry in LICENSE, there should be a corresponding
info in NOTICE”.

Are there specific case where you believe there should be a corresponding NOTICE… and why?

While permissively licensed products (MIT, BSD,EPL,EDL) require inclusion of license information,
“Under normal circumstances, there is no need to modify NOTICE” [1]  and [2]. In most
cases these products don’t have notice-like content to include.

For AL-2.0 licensed dependencies see [3].

Reviewing the files in licenses/binary-license again I see there are some cases where we’ve
included a “standard” NOTICE file (one lacking any additional attributions) for some AL-2.0
licensed dependencies.  Justin, should these AL-2.0 “standard” NOTICES be included?

As for some AL-2.0 licensed dependencies where we haven’t included a NOTICE, at least in
some (all?) cases the dependency simply lacks a NOTICE or notice-like file.  Though perhaps
we’ve omitted some “standard” NOTICE content by mistake.

Perhaps Justin could speak more authoritatively to this.
