ant elder reopened LEGAL-62:
----------------------------


This issue keeps on coming up so i wondered if it would be helpful to update the description
of the NOTICE file at http://apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice.

Presently it says:

2.The remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for required third-party notices.

How about extending that to have something like:

2.The remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for required third-party notices. What is
a required notices depend on the license in question. The vast majority of these can be satisfied
by the 3rd party license file being included in the product LICENSE file rather than having
developers trying to determine how to interpret the attribution clauses of each product. The
main case of required third-party notice that doesn't fit this are advertising clauses, and
those are few and far between. For discussion about this see LEGAL-59 and LEGAL-62 and the
ML discussion around those http://apache.markmail.org/message/u66o5ucyfquxjl7i

NOTICE file may also include copyright notices moved from source files submitted to the ASF.
> See: http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html#notice
> I understand the part about "copyright notices moved from source files" but what are
required third-party notices?
> After participating in many Incubator poddling release reviews I've seen poddlings asked
to do release respins because they've left stuff out and also to respin for including text
that is said shouldn't be included. There doesn't seem to be much common understanding on
what these notices are, and like LEGAL-31 this is a constant point of contention at the Incubator
so it would be really helpful to have some clarification.
