Sean Busbey commented on HADOOP-12893:

Thanks Sean Busbey. I sent out a mail to common-dev, we'll see about what comes back. Do you
have references for these statements? I believe you, but I would like a comprehensive guide
for what's required. Else we're liable to still get it wrong.

Sure. I'm guessing these are the two statements in question, if there was another just let
me know.

* LICENSE/NOTICE files should cover just the artifact in question gets covered by the [ASF
Release Policy section on licensing|http://apache.org/legal/release-policy.html#licensing-documentation]
* Release votes have to be Majority gets covered by the [ASF Release Policy section on approval|http://apache.org/legal/release-policy.html#release-approval]

IIUC we don't need to list the copyrights for BSD and MIT licensed deps in NOTICE. I'm not
100% sure how this applies to included JARs, but the understanding for source files is that
you just leave their copyright headers and it's okay. Included JARs should also have their
LICENSE/NOTICE in their own META-INF dirs, which would also satisfy the copyright requirement.

That's correct, you should not include anything from BSD or MIT licensed deps in NOTICE. That
includes bundled JARs; in both source and bundled binary cases you should have a reference
in the LICENSE file for the included work. (ref [licensing howto on permissive licenses|http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#permissive-deps])
