Foundation (

NOTICE files should only include references to software which is
actually included in the release.
i.e. the "/uses" should be removed.

Don't include references to 3rd party software which is not actually shipped.

Other things to check:
- N&L and DISCLAIMER files in every archive (and at tag top-level)
