Hi, I'm sorry that I don't have the time to participate in this thread fully
and perform a thorough review of the release candidate, but
respinning an RC in order to add copyright notices to NOTICE
doesn't sound right.

    http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html#mod-notice

    Modifications to NOTICE

    NOTICE is reserved for a certain subset of legally required notifications
    which are not satisfied by either the text of LICENSE or the presence of
    licensing information embedded within the dependency subtree. Aside from
    Apache-licensed dependencies which supply NOTICE files of their own, it is
    uncommon for a dependency to require additions to NOTICE.

    Copyright notifications which have been relocated from source files
    (rather than removed) must be preserved in NOTICE. However, elements such
    as the copyright notifications embedded within BSD and MIT licenses need
    not be duplicated in NOTICE -- it suffices to leave those notices in their
    original locations.

    It is important to keep NOTICE as brief and simple as possible, as each
    addition places a burden on downstream consumers. Do not add anything to
    NOTICE which is not legally required.

See LEGAL-59, LEGAL-62 and LEGAL-155 for the back story.

The "Licensing HowTo" linked above is supposed to provide a formulaic approach
for generating LICENSE and NOTICE.  Hopefully, LICENSE and NOTICE files which
conform to its recommendations will not get any -1 votes from IPMC members.
