    Description

      The NOTICE file that gets included in the distribution is too broad, or at least doesn't make it clear that this is only for the full distribution: https://github.com/apache/cxf/blob/master/distribution/src/main/appended-resources/META-INF/NOTICE

      In my case, using CXF I bring in a subset of your JARs

      However, external interpretation is that your NOTICE file requires all of this extra content - when not all of it applies in this case.
