My feeling on the matter here is that these are incubating projects.
We allow things like (L)GPL dependencies in the releases, as long as a
PLAN exists to get rid of them. Of course, it must be perfectly clean
to graduate. But I believe we have wiggle room while incubating.

As Branko noted, the included projects are mentioned in the NOTICE
file, but that isn't quite Right. The 0.2.0 release will get it

We could have stepped back and rolled another tarball, but I believe
it is more important for Bloodhound to get a release out [than to be
perfect on 0.1.0], in order to get some traction and some attraction
to build a larger community. The BH folks plan to release every few
weeks, so we should see the corrections in a release at the end of the
month. (or we could convince Gary to do another in a week or two :-)
