Couple questions from the source distribution:

(1) The source distribution seems to have the following binary jars :

web/lib/servlet-api.jar : It looks like you mention this under your
notice file but I don' t see details about it's license.

wtk/lib/plugin.jar : I don' t see this mentioned in notice or license

wtk/stax-api1.0-jar : There was some discussion about the license of
this jar in legal-discuss recently (see. LEGAL-42 [1]), and looks like
people have been recommending using the jar from Geronimo which is
under Apache license (geronimo-stax-api_1.0_spec-1.0.1.jar)

In general, the notice file in the distribution mention couple of
other licenses (e.g CPL 1.0, Java EE Servlet specification, BSD, etc)
which are not appended on the LICENSE file.See [2] for more detail.
