The contents of the NOTICE file is another area I think is not so
precisely defined.
http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice says:

"The remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for required
third-party notices"

but there is nothing that defines what are "required third-party
notices". The ANTLR license (http://www.antlr.org/license.html) says:

"Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright
notice, this list of conditions and the following disclaimer in the
documentation and/or other materials provided with the distribution."

This is done in the Cassandra release by including the complete ANTLR
license in a separate license file, and as thats done it covers all
the ANTLR requirements so is there any specific ASF policy that says
its also necessary to have anything related to ANTLR in the NOTICE
file?
