I don't think the NOTICE file is the correct place for these, and i
don't think thats enough to document the licenses that apply.

As one example, the binary release clerezza-tdb-distribution.zip
contains a big jar platform.launcher.tdb-0.5-incubating.jar which
embeds other jars, for example it contains
servlet-api-3.0.20100224.jar, which is EPL licensed so that needs to
be mentioned in clerezza-tdb-distribution.zip.

There are many jars within jars using various licenses included in
clerezza-tdb-distribution.zip which also need to be mentioned. Ask
your mentors for help if the requirements aren't clear, or at least
ask them to vote here if they disagree.
