totally agree with the inclination to get goin' with this release.  I'm sorry it's had so
many first and starts.

I misreading their license?  (wouldn't be the first time)

I don't remember that license coming up before so the easiest way to
find out is to bring it up at legal-discuss@. A similar question was
raised in and the
conclusion there was it didn't have to be in the NOTICE. This is not
exactly the same but it is similar so maybe it would be ok for this
release could go ahead assuming its ok and raise a legal JIRA to
confirm that for the future?
