Hi Leo,

Thanks for taking a look.  Some comments in-line:

I think you're suggesting a different LICENSE/NOTICE for source versus
binary distributions.  I did some random checking looking at some
source versus binary Apache project distributions (incubator and
non-incubator) and as far as I can tell, they kept their same LICENSE
and NOTICE files even though they were not re-distributing the
dependency binaries in the source archive.

Don't mean to say we should just follow the crowd, but I don't think
this is standard practice unless another thread has a viewpoint on

I see varying degrees of attribution to slf4j in other Apache
(incubating and non-incubating) projects (some have none, some have a
line).  The slf4j line was kept from the Wink 0.1 release.  IMHO, this
is not a release blocker, but we can remove it in a future release if
it is the right thing to do.
