The NOTICE file is wrong.

Apache Tajo
Copyright 2013 The Apache Software Foundation

This product includes software developed by The Apache Software
Foundation (

This product includes/uses Jetty (,
Copyright (c) Mort Bay Consulting Pty. Ltd. (Australia)


The middle paragraph must read

This product includes software developed at
The Apache Software Foundation (

Note that it is developed AT not BY.

The third paragraph is also wrong.
Additional notices are ONLY for included bits, so "/uses" must be removed.
Also, the NOTICE file must be appropriate to the container, which is
either SCM (i.e. Git) or the source archive or the binary archive.
Since the source archive and SCM should rarely contain binary code, it
generally has different contents from a binary archive that may
contain permitted 3rd party libraries
Furthermore, only *required* notices should be included [1]

AFAICT there is only a source archive provided, so there is no need to
consider binary dependencies.

It looks like the only possible candidate for the NOTICE file is the
JQuery and JSPlumb javascript source, and as those are both available
under the MIT license, according to [1] it's not needed.

However of course the LICENSE file must contain the appropriate
license text for each (or pointers to them in additional files). The
LICENSE entry should make clear that we are using the MIT license, as
the other choice (GPL2) is not be allowed in ASF releases.
