Subject Re: Help with Dependency Licensing

Nick,

In general, the LICENSE and NOTICE refers to the contents of the release
itself.  If you're not bundling any of those outside dependencies, then
there would be nothing to include.

Please also note - you can provide a binary release, assuming that the
binary release does not package the outside dependencies and that its clear
that it brings in those other dependencies.
