That's not how I interpret the policy document.  It says:

"To apply the ALv2 to a new software distribution, include one copy of the license text by
the file:

into a file called LICENSE in the top directory of your distribution. If the distribution
is a jar
or tar file, try to add the LICENSE file first in order to place it at the top of the archive."

That's what we do.  Of course we'll make every effort to make
our distribution easy to review.  However, it does seem that
we're ok wrt current policy, and view this as a suggestion
for next time.  Ok?
