+`LICENSE` and `NOTICE` files for an Apache product.
+
+Overview of the `LICENSE` and `NOTICE` files
+--------------------------------------------
+
+The `LICENSE` file communicates the licensing of all content in an Apache
+product distribution.  It always contains the text of the Apache License, and
+sometimes more.
+
+The `NOTICE` file is described in [section 4.4 of the Apache License version
+2.0](http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.html#redistribution).  It
+presence is not mandated by the license itself, but by [ASF
+policy](http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice).
+
+The complete requirements for `LICENSE` and `NOTICE` are described
 [elsewhere](http://www.apache.org/legal).
