Does the release actually *include* JUnit, or is that only used for testing?
If so, then it should not be the in the NOTICE file, nor in the binary release.

Is ANTLR actually needed at run-time, or is it only needed for
building the code?
I'm not sure whether it needs to be mentioned in NOTICE if it is only
used at build-time.
It should not be in the binary release if it's not needed at run-time.

The NOTICE file mentions SLF4J, which AIUI is a logging abstraction -
does the binary release include a logging implementation? If so, it
will need to be documented in the LICENSE and NOTICE.

It's not possible to be definitive about the files without knowing
what libraries are actually going to be included in the binary
