The top-level NOTICE file looks wrong:

-------------
Apache Sling
Copyright 2008-2009 The Apache Software Foundation

Apache Sling is based on source code originally developed
by Day Software (http://www.day.com/).

This product includes software developed at
The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).
[snip]
-------------

The second and third paragraphs are the wrong way round, see:

http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice

==

The NOTICE files in the Maven jars also don't adhere to the above.

==

There are rather a lot of LICENSE and NOTICE files dotted around the
source archive.
I would expect the top-level one to be a superset of the lower level
ones, but this is not the case as the top-level L &or N files don't
mention Rhino.

Binary archive
==========
The LICENSE does not mention JSON or Rhino
The NOTICE file does not mention JSON or Rhino

The nested binary archive contains a copy of Groovy and Jetty, neither
of which is credited anywhere as far as I can tell. I would expect at
least a mention in the LICENSE files, as these are not ASF projects.
