The paragraph under the copyright line is effectively the software licences and
the NOTICE file does not contain any licence information for 3rd party software.

Should this be changed for ALL external contributions?

  The remainder of the NOTICE file is to be used for required third-party
  notices. The NOTICE file may also include copyright notices moved from source
  files submitted to the ASF.

I couldn't find anything explicit in the Apache documentation to suggest that
licencing information should be included in the NOTICE file.
