AIUI they are needed in SVN as well.

The remote-resources plugin has only generated a rudimentary NOTICE
file, which does not seem to cover all the contributions. What about
the SpringSource code? Does that not need a mention?

Not necessarily.

It may be in a site module which is used to maintain
www.apache.org/dist/project files (e.g. HEADER and README html files).
This is because it must be present in the dist/ directory, so it makes
it convenient to store it alongside HEADER and README.

Have a look at the subdirectories under:

http://www.apache.org/dist/incubator/

and you will see that there is a KEYS file for each (apart from one or
two that don't have any files in them yet).
