Subject Re: Non Apache software licensed under ASL
Date Sun, 02 Dec 2012 07:58:26 GMT
First of all, re subject, It's "ALv2", not "ASL".  I assume you've
already read the license (paragraph 4(d)).  More below.

If you you create a software outside of ASF and license it under ALv2,
you are not obligated to create a NOTICE file.  (Doing so might be good
software engineering, since the license special-cases the "NOTICE" file;
but that's a separate issue.)
