That is not the purpose of NOTICE. You do not list all of the copyright holders in it. I’ve
voted -1 on releases that have done this. You list only the copyright notices that have been
relocated from existing files, usually via a software grant. Those copyrights would have had
a year associated with them which would normally be <= year when the donation was made.
Note that this is ASF policy on NOTICE files [1]

Again see ASF policy on NOTICE files [1]
