I've seen you post this link several times now in this thread.  I
personally have no idea what you'd like to get updated on this page, and
the IPMC cannot help you get that updated, only the legal committee can.

I'm assuming that some of your concerns are around bullet #2 "Test data for
which the addition of a source header would cause the tests to fail."  The
problem looking at this statement vs the file actually in source:

https://github.com/apache/incubator-netbeans/blob/master/diff/test/unit/src/org/netbeans/modules/diff/builtin/provider/DiffTestFile1a.txt

It includes a license header "Sun Public License".  This line in the
document is saying to exclude the header, but you're including a SPL
header.  Ultimately, at this point you can't remove the header since it's
already been declared and was not included in the relicensing of Netbeans
to Apache License.

Or am I miss understanding your points around changing this document?
