This just isn't making sense as I read the svn tree for jackrabbit however.

Individual files contain -no- copyright, -no- indicication of where the
copyright claim is

has pointing to
and claiming the license but no copyright.  That LICENSE.txt is bundled in the
tree (not, you'll note, LICENSE-2.0) at that level.  NOTICE.txt tells us...

This product includes software developed by
The Apache Software Foundation (

Based on source code originally developed by
Day Software (

which is all well and good, but doesn't assert copyrights.

It's not until you climb all the way up to

(outside of even the src/ tree!) that you discover...

I'm really completely unclear how this protects the files we author, the files
authored by others (which we have appropriately appropriated) and the files on
which no copyright is claimed (e.g. apr/ examples public domain.)
