Thanks Dan, my brain is spinning from all the apache-legal emails I've
been going through since I saw your mail.

I think our NOTICE files are more of the reference style that should
be in the LICENSE section.
Interesting that we can now just reference the License text as it was
my understanding when we released M2/M2.1 that the full license text
must be present in the LICENSE file.

The AMQP license is missing from those as there had been previous
discussions on apache-legal about including nor not including it that
I wasn't party too.

Will update the files and aim to put out an RC4 for review later today.

Thanks all for the feedback.

Martin
