If the dependency is a library developed and released by the ASF, and it doesn't
require any license other than the Apache v2 license, then you don't need to
repeat that license.

However, in this case, the library artifact developers have decided (for reasons
I don't know) that they need to include licenses other than the Apache v2
license, for their distributed artifact (their JAR, which, we are, in turn,
redistributing), which, means, I think, that if we are (re)distributing their
artifact, we have to bubble up their licenses to our top level, or have an
alternative licensing statement / strategy that describes what re-bundlers of
our work would need to know/do.
