I would question whether these N&L errors are non-critical.

http://www.apache.org/dev/release.html#what-must-every-release-contain

says

"Every ASF release *must* comply with ASF licensing policy. This
requirement is of utmost importance and an audit should be performed
before any full release is created. In particular, every artifact
distributed must contain appropriate LICENSE and NOTICE files."

I read this as meaning that the N&L files are (one of) the most
important part(s) of a release.
