Do we need to do that in the NOTICE file? I wouldn't mind doing that,
but should the NOTICE file carry the licensing histories as well as
copyright notices? The fact that the code is ALv2 licensed is already
stated in LICENSE and we have the paper trail for the contribution.

For example, the example NOTICE file at
http://www.apache.org/licenses/example-NOTICE.txt doesn't contain
licensing histories.

See above. We have a software grant for the ServiceUI contribution
which makes it distributable under ALv2. Of course we could better
document the licensing history (previously under Sun Community Source
License), but I'm not sure it's necessary or even relevant.
