I'd say you just list the dependencies in the ivy.xml file under the project root.

Here is what you'll find at the bottom of the LICENSE file:

This distribution bundles jline 0.9.94, which is available under the
2-clause BSD License. For details, see a copy of the license in

This distribution bundles SLF4J 1.6.1, which is available under the MIT
License. For details, see a copy of the license in

This distribution bundles a modified version of 'JZLib' as part of
Netty-3.7.0, which is available under the 3-clause BSD licence. For
details, see a copy of the licence in META-INF/license/LICENSE-jzlib.txt
as part of the Netty jar in lib/netty-3.7.0.Final.jar.

We ship slf4j in our artifact, that's why we list its license, perhaps you don't need it as
you say.

and consequently might not build or run properly. You may also want to MIT to the list of
licenses. slf4j is under that license.
