Hm, recent discussions on legal-discuss, for example here:

Basically, the notice file needs to contain all required
attributions.  If the notice file of APR contains an
attribution, and we're shipping APR, our notice file needs
to contain that attribution, because we're shipping the
code that made the APR folks put those statements into
their notice file in the first place.  We can trust APR
to get the attributions right, but since we're not shipping
the APR notice file, we need to copy the attributions over
to our notice file, so they don't get lost.  Does that make

If we're shipping only parts of APR, and we're sure we're
ommitting those things that required those attributions,
we can leave them out of our notice file.  However, that
way seems unnecessarily brittle.  Just copy over the stuff
from the APR notice file, and remember to do this every
time you update your APR version :-)
