All of them are inside the packages in the location specific to the
given OS. E.g.:
   $ rpm -ql -p ~/Downloads/hive-0.8.1-1.fc16.noarch.rpm  | egrep
"LICENSE|NOTICE"
   /usr/lib/hive/LICENSE
   /usr/lib/hive/NOTICE

These are basically rules of Linux distributions:
   http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:LicensingGuidelines#License_Text
   http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/copyright-format/1.0/

Please let us know if that's enough from the Apache standpoint or whether
it is desirable to have those files eslewhere (including the repository itself).

Thanks,
Roman.
