I'd suggest you ask on general @incubator mailing list for a review. People there have knowledge
and experience of what should and should not be in a NOTICE file.

The entries at the beginning are all Category B licenses, and ...
"Software under the following licenses may be included in binary form
within an Apache product if the inclusion is appropriately labeled
(see below):"

This is my understanding of "appropriate labeling".

It's a fair point that this would be better. I'll put it on my radar.

I don't think that's true, if a test needs a jar to load to test jar
loading. That's what this is AFAIK, just like including a JPEG in the
source distro to support a JPEG test. It is not black-box compiled
code that is part of the software product, which is what Roy is
correctly calling out as not OK in a source release.
