I think Dave Jencks and Jason Dillon have done a real nice job of  
integrating the m-r-r-p into some Geronimo sub-projects. Dependency  
info (currently in your notice file) is created instead. There's no  
fully-automated process for generating proper NOTICE files, at least  
to my knowledge. However, since most notice files in an Apache project  
only need to contain copyright information for the project. You can  
hit most cases with a simple attribution and manage the non-standard  
cases  manually. It's still not an easy process...

I won't have a chance to work on any of this until later today (might  
be as late as tomorrow morning).
