So long as the file is called NOTICE.txt (or NOTICE) and is at the
top-level of a binary archive, it does not matter what it is called in
SVN. To avoid confusion, probably best to rename or move the version
of the NOTICE file for binary releases. Since the binary file is just
an extended version of the source NOTICE file (at least in this case),
the binary version could be generated by concatenation.
