We are not distributing code under several licenses.
The only license applicable to UIMA is the AL.  The
somewhat cryptic (to a non-lawyer) statement in the
NOTICE file was put there on request by the IPMC, we
didn't have it there originally.  To my way of thinking,
what it is supposed to say is that some of the code
originated with IBM, but has since been relicensed
under the Apache License.

This exact version of the NOTICE and LICENSE file has
been approved for our previous two releases, so I do
hope they are still ok.
