No, I don't take it to cover that.  I think it is more like speaking of third-party code that
bears ALv2 license notices already.

[Also "rights" and "transfer" are rather vague and potentially over-broad.  I have no interest
in haggling about that.  All I am suggesting is that the original files do not appear to be
transposed to having the form of notice preferred by the ASF.  Having not been on the PPMC,
I have no idea what grants were received in any form.]
