bq. I suppose this a misstake or possible due to the ASL header automation tool.

Yes. If BSD is an approved license, it would be nice if RAT would recognize it and then we
could just add it to these files. But RAT doesn't appear to. It just looks for "http://dojotoolkit.org/community/licensing.shtml"
and "TMF854 Version 1.0 - Copyright TeleManagement Forum" - which it considers modified BSD.
Weak.

Anyway, NOTICE should also state the license for Snowball along with the copyright as well.
(reads weird - i know the copyright is there with a link - but it should state the license
as well)

> All classes in org.tartarus.snowball (but not in org.tartarus.snowball.ext) has for some
reason been given an ASL header. These classes are licensed with BSD. Thus the ASL header
should be removed. I suppose this a misstake or possible due to the ASL header automation
tool.
