      Description

      The NOTICE.txt file in commons-compress contains the following entries:

      Original BZip2 classes contributed by Keiron Liddle
      <keiron@aftexsw.com>, Aftex Software to the Apache Ant project
      
      Original Tar classes from contributors of the Apache Ant project
      
      Original Zip classes from contributors of the Apache Ant project
      
      Original CPIO classes contributed by Markus Kuss and the jRPM project
      (jrpm.sourceforge.net)
      

      It's good that we acknowledge contributions, but having those entries in the NOTICE file is not appropriate unless the licensing of the original contributions explicitly required such attribution notices.

      I suggest that we move these entries to a README.txt file.
