Hi Craig,

just committed some changes to address those concerns:

- issues #1 and #2: added into NOTICE/LICENSE

- #3: that comment is most probably there because it is a minified version,
anyway, I've added the appropiate text in NOTICE

- #4: more or less, the same issue as #3. We contacted the author and asked
him to explicitly state the license, which was done soon after. The file is
still used although we may switch to other alternatives in the future. The
whole history can be tracked at
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JSPWIKI-382

- #5: removed the "All rights reserved" text and explicitly stated all
types of licenses in the NOTICE file.

- #6: included all the licenses verbatim in the main LICENSE file. Really
long file there. Also, I've noticed some jars' versions where incorrect and
in some cases the license had also changed (for instance jetty is licensed
under AL2.0 now) so, I updated that too.

Hope that all is fine now, thanks for looking into this!


br,
juan pablo
