If LGPL code is included either in your source tree or in your existing
release(s), why isn't that reflected in a top-level LICENSE and NOTICE
file?

wasn't obvious to me besides that tiny bit that you include some LGPL code.

Or am I missing how this dependency works?

Yes, I agree that incubation is a process, and there is great progress
both here and in the other project towards an Apache-license-harmonious
outcome.  But we need to be very careful that end-users have a
crystal-clear understanding that there is copyleft style licenses in
releases or dependencies of anything at Apache.
