Before starting to work on these files I had a look at the corresponding Apache 
policies/rules/... regarding these files - [1], [2], [3]

I have discovered [9] which more or less state that an entry into the NOTICE 
file is mostly not needed and depends on the specific license of the 3rd party 
Having a look at the LICENSE and NOTICE file of Apache httpd project seems to 
confirm this.

Pedro, do you consider [9] when you did your hard work on the NOTICE file?

Mentors (and others too, of course), do you have certain advise what kind of 
wordings in a license makes an entry in the NOTICE file necessary?



Thanks in advance, Oliver.
