I think a little while back it seemed to be understood that pretty
much any copyright you might find in the project code or any of the
licenses it used should be copied into the NOTICE file, and thats why
you see some NOTICE file with lots of content. Thats changed and now
the view is there are very few things that should actually be added to
the notice file.

The most authoritative place is the link those links already link to -
http://apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice - which says "...The
remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for required third-party
notices.". The problem is that what are "required third-party notices"
is not really described anywhere.

There was some helpful discussion about this in
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-59 and the ML discussion
around that, for example,
http://apache.markmail.org/message/u66o5ucyfquxjl7i?q=LEGAL-59, and
theres also https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-62
