"checkout" location may have a meaning for the PMC of a given project 
but not for the random user. If the NOTICE is there to tell the random 
user downloading random files what he can do then we probably put a 
NOTICE file in each folder.

Has the folder some special legal meanings?

Wouldn't it be better to make sure that http browsing of the svn 
repository return *always* a disclaimer claiming that it is not a 
distribution and pointing people to real/official release distributions?
