That seems fine; also please needs to be changed whereever else it is
used, e.g. podlings.xml, web-page(s), Wiki reports...

As already noted, DISCLAIMER is missing.

Just noticed that the top-level NOTICE says

Apache OpenNLP

OpenNLP Tools

That's wrong.
There's also a leading blank line which should be removed.
