Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Spark 1.5.1 (RC1)
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2015 17:24:25 GMT
Hey Richard,

My assessment (just looked before I saw Sean's email) is the same as
his. The NOTICE file embeds other projects' licenses. If those
licenses themselves have pointers to other files or dependencies, we
don't embed them. I think this is standard practice.
