probably not

apache delegates as much as possible to PMCs so there's usually quite
a lot of diversity. asking on the community mailing list would be the
best bet for best practice advice.

the key point is to ensure that everything is ok as far as goes. for third party jars, this means
ensuring that they are clearly licensed (i usually check in a
foo-bar-1.1.LICENSE next to foo-bar-1.1.jar) and that any additions
required to NOTICE and LICENSE documents have been made.
