Robert Burrell Donkin commented on LEGAL-119:
---------------------------------------------

Where a jar contain its own NOTICE, it would be unnecessary to add its contents. 

Sometimes jars are added to Maven whose license requires the distribution of a NOTICE not
included in the jar. In this case, append the contents of NOTICE for the jar to the Apache
license. Best practice would be to clearly indicate and separate these terms into an independent
section through tabulation and a header.

Example
------------
Suppose moo.jar requires that "This contains software created by bar." is noted by distributors
but does not include a NOTICE. The 

Apache Foo                                                                               
              <---- product name

  <---- Apache advertising clause

'moo.jar' requires the following notice:                                                 
       <--- Inform downstream consumers 
   This contains software created by bar.

> This issue has come up in the context of a Whirr release artifact which includes third
party software that is itself under AL2.0, Voldemort in this case.
> Voldemort has an extensive NOTICE file. 
> https://github.com/voldemort/voldemort/blob/master/NOTICE
> However Whirr is only including the Voldemort jar file which does not contain any of
the dependencies listed in the NOTICE to which I provided the above link.
> Given the AL2.0 in section 4.4 says, in part, "excluding those notices that do not pertain
to any part of the Derivative Works" is Whirr required to include any notice from the voldemort
NOTICE?
