That is all irrelevant for the qpid-incubating-M3.tar.gz package.   That 
package contains the source for everything.  Thus, it's top level needs a 
LICENSE and NOTICE file (and DISCLAIMER) that is an aggregate of everything 
in that package.

Also, some of the NOTICE files are not using the proper format.   For example, 
the python and ruby ones do not have:

Apache [PRODUCT_NAME]
Copyright [yyyy] The Apache Software Foundation


The other thing I just noticed may require a note be sent off to the 
legal-discuss folks.   The amqp spec XML files have a rather 
strange "license" at the top of them.   One of the lines reads:

"The following disclaimers, which you hereby also acknowledge as to any use 
you may make of the Advanced Messaging Queue Protocol Specification:"

which may mean that those disclaimers need to in the NOTICE file, or at least 
the whole license section copied to the bottom of the LICENSE file.  Not 
really sure though.    The legal folks would probably need to look at that.  

Finally, a BUNCH of files don't have the proper Apache header.   None of 
the .py files in the python/examples directory, for example.   Someone should 
run RAT and make sure it's all cleaned up.   (a pointer to a RAT report with 
the vote would be good)
