As I think I mentioned in other emails.  I am all for *vetting* the dependencies to make sure
that they follow licensing provisions and are compatible with ASF policy.  This *must* be
done before *any* release. 

What I claim can be put on hold until the next release is the extensive documentation of those
dependencies in the LICENSE/NOTICE that you seem to be proposing.
