OK, I will fix this.

This is just a by-product of Maven. We can delete it.

Having too much information in the NOTICE files is not a crime. The 
Maven remote-resources plugin aggregates all this stuff for us so we 
never miss any notice that we need to put in.

Why does the LICENSE file need to have a copy of all the other licenses? 
These are contained in the lib/ directory like many other ASF projects.

Re: the ASL license in lib/ - once again having too much information is 
not a crime. This is a service to uesrs so they know where the libraries 
came from.

Not true - there is not consensus that properties/xml files need to have 
headers. All the Java source code files have headers. If there are 
specific files that you feel should have a license that don't please 
list them and explain why. I'm not saying that we didn't miss something, 
but I am saying that the ones that I know about don't necessarily 
require a header.

the branch will be tagged once its released.
