-Binary Distributions with Additional Bundled Dependencies
-=========================================================
-
-It is common for binary packages distributed alongside canonical source
-packages to bundle additional dependencies.  If that is the case, the
-`LICENSE` and `NOTICE` files for the compiled package and the source package
-must be treated separately.  Licensing information for dependencies which are
-bundled only with the binary distribution _must not_ be included in `LICENSE`
-and `NOTICE` for the source package.
-
-One technique to achieve this goal is to keep separate files within the source
-tree, e.g. `dev/BINARY_NOTICE` and `dev/BINARY_LICENSE`, and to have a build
-script swap them into place when the binary package is assembled.
