I think the NOTICE file included in the source release is wrong.
NOTICE files are for *required* notices only, and should be as short
as possible, and should only relate to software that is actually
included in the particular artifact in which they appear.

There are several repeated instances of

=======
This product includes software developed by
The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).
=======

There should only be one instance at the head of the file.

The Tomcat (Tomcat? is that really included?) section mentions NSIS -
is that really included?

There are lots of other entries which look superfluous.
It's vital that the NOTICE file only include *required* notices.

If the binary builds include additional software, then their N&L files
need to include any required references.

I think the NOTICE problems are serious enough to warrant a respin.
