Yes, there is general consternation about this, especially on the incubator 
list.

Here is one resource <http://www.apache.org/legal/src-headers.html>.  Note that 
[Required] Notices appear in NOTICE, not licenses.  There are other places 
where this is being worked on.  I don't have links handy.

Here's an example that could be simplified by moving the detailed Copyright 
Notices (essentially licenses) to LICENSE.txt and simplifying the NOTICE file: 
<https://docs.oracle.com/cloud/latest/big-data-discovery-cloud/BDDLG/cl_apache_commons_math_1_2.htm>.
  I am not a good source of advice about this.

The go-to person on this topic appears to be Justin Mclean who can be found on 
legal-discuss@ and general-incubator@ on these matters.
