> The files LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt were last edited 5 years ago and should 
> be updated to include all licenses of dependencies (and their dependencies) 
> in accordance to [Assembling LICENSE and NOTICE 
> HOWTO|http://www.apache.org/dev/licensing-howto.html]:
> # check for missing or obsolete licenses due to added or removed dependencies
> # update year in NOTICE.txt -- should be a range according to the licensing 
> HOWTO
> # bundled libraries are referenced with path and version number, e.g 
> {{lib/icu4j-4_0_1.jar}}. This would require to update the LICENSE.txt with 
> every dependency upgrade. A more generic reference ("ICU4J") would be easier 
> to maintain but the HOWTO requires to "specify the version of the dependency 
> as licenses are sometimes changed".
> # try to reduce the size of LICENSE.txt (currently 5800 lines). Mainly, 
> according to the HOWTO there is no need to repeat the Apache license again 
> and again.
