Correct not everything there is a licensing error but there several that would be IMO release
blockers. But as we're changing it we might as well try and get it right.

License pointers are preferred to full licenses in the LICENSE file. eg BSD license in [1]
Not a blocker but very easy to fix, assuming you agree to the change.

They do but as per [2][3] you don't copy the full contents of the Apache 3rd party NOTICE
file into our NOTICE file. You only need the parts you're required to copy. IMO it's also
easier to have the full licence and notice in version control so you can see the license without
have to build the software. (30 minutes or so in the case of the binary).
