Thanks Justin, these are super helpful! We will address these problems as
follows, please let us know if you have additional suggestions

- NOTICE is still incorrect
We will change  "2019 and onwards" to  "2019".

- I did notice a directory called "3rdparty/dlpack/apps/from_numpyā€¯ is this
> code from numpy?
No the code demonstrate how to convert data from numpy to the dlpack
format, the code is under ALv2 license as indicated by dlpack repo

> - This file [2] has two copyright lines is this correct?

We will fix the problem and keep on copyright file.

> be an issue and I suggest you ask on legal discuss if this is OK. I

 The license [3] actually provides three licenses. The legacy section of
the license indicate that the file is also licensed under MIT and
University of Illinois/NCSA.
 We reported the file as MIT license as indicated in the source header. We
also agree to discuss the exemption on ASF legal

cma.c and cma/Makefile

The file belongs to kernel module(which our code base does not depend on)
but can be helpful when user builds a customized version of linux to run
the VTA driver.
Although the driver file itself is MIT, because linux kernel driver has a
policy that open source driver has to be dual licensed to GPL, the driver
declaration declared the binary module as GPL.
After looking it closely we agree that this poses a potential risk, and
will remove the file from the project (we will suggest the community to
host a separate repo for kernel driver plugins).
