The software grant license agreement to which it refers is this :

http://www.apache.org/licenses/software-grant.txt

I assumed that when outside entities file software grants they always
use the software-grant.txt form (or CCLA addendum B in
cla-corporate.txt),  but I'm probably wrong about that.

For this release, I don't think anything needs to be done. Perhaps a
broader issue is how apache projects as a whole should reference the
code drops that come in via a software grant -- or if it's even
necessary to do so since the original copyright is in the NOTICE file.
Perhaps that's sufficient?
