Please remember that a NOTICE file should also contain a list of all industry standards implemented
in that Apache aggregation.


Some standards organization licenses REQUIRE such notices of their contributions. I think
it is a good practice regardless.


I have always placed these in the README, or often times CHANGES,

as it is informational guidance to the user.


If an implementation license demands advertising, such as the license

for a header file we distribute, then it does belong in NOTICE per the

terms of the license.


I believe the preference has been to avoid NOTICE pollution and dilution.
