There is no single NOTICE file here.
Each ASF NOTICE file is potentially different depending on the included code.

If ASF project A includes code from ASF project B, the project A
NOTICE file may or may not need updating to take account of the NOTICE
file from project B.
This depends on whether the code from project B needs any specific
terms from NOTICE B.
