I've had a look, the only issue i see is I don't think the NOTICE file in the binary distribution is correct as it has many things which i expect are not required. When we last discussed this on general@ we said this is not strictly a blocking problem, so


Thanks for the review and vote ant, much appreciated.

but i think you should do a complete review of whats in the NOTICE file with your mentors and remove everything which doesn't need to be there.

I'm curious what in your opinion doesn't need to be in the NOTICE file. I might have missed some recent discussions on this topic here, but AFAIK all those notices are required. Or did the guidelines really change dramatically recently?

See this email [1] for an answer to a similar question, also there is now a definition of required third party notices at [2].

In a nutshell, very few things actually require mention in the NOTICE file, and best not to unless there is a reason to.
