Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.9.0.rc7

Automation may help but it is no replacement for human eyes.

It depends on what you mean by significant, usually changes made to 3rd party files stay under
the original license. See [1] on this, note that "Do not add the standard Apache License header
to the top of third-party source files.”. If the license was to change, and the headers
replaced then that needs to be noted in NOTICE. Please make sure that the license is noted

from projects with ALv2 with MS copyright but with significant modification covered by ICLA.

There is a mix of licenses in there and they are not mention in LICENSE. All 3rd party code
needs to be mentioned in LICENSE.

You need to check the source artefact, the license and notice files need to reflect what is
actually released. [2]
