I only head "Legal Affairs" in the context of 3rd party before: 
"Licenses not appearing on these lists must be explicitly approved by 
the ASF Legal Affairs officer prior to distribution."
So, as long as we comply with what is already written in the 3rd party 
document we (JAMES PMC) can decide whatever we want and there is no ASF 
policy for this?

Sorry but this is not clear. In this specific case: is it something we 
can decide ourselves or something we should submit to legal affairs?
Should I open a JIRA issue on the new LEGAL JIRA for this?

*IF* the "netware package of httpd" includes third party stuff requiring 
attribution they are violating the license for that stuff because they 
forgot to place there the NOTICE including the attribution.
Isn't this a legal issue?
