What follows is a superficial review of what I see in this email thread -- I
have not checked the distribution to see whether or not bits are actually
bundled, nor have I checked the Phoenix mailing list archives.

The proposed LICENSE file looks OK.  It is not necessary to embed the complete
text for MIT, 2-clause BSD and 3-clause BSD -- pointers suffice -- but it is
not forbidden, either.

The proposed NOTICE file contains a bunch of extraneous copyright notices.
Their presence in NOTICE constitutes a licensing documentation bug and they
should be removed.  See the licensing how-to, as well as this mail for
additional explanation:

    Because the file is named "NOTICE", people tend to think it's for anything
    notice-ish. This is a pernicious misconception which keeps coming back
    over and over like a weed...
