      Description

      Our first attempt to release beta1 didn't include a LICENSE/NOTICE at all.
      Current trunk includes a plain LICENSE/NOTICE tuple with just ASF "references".

      We have to reintroduce complete LICENSE/NOTICE files in the binary distribution as we include third party dependencies in that package.

      Subtask: we have to make sure we correctly document the way JSW artifacts are included and what their license is (and the fact that appassembler doesn't include licensing informations about itself and the JSW content they took from the tanuki wrapper).

      I uploaded the tanuki wrapper version 3.2.3 I obtained under the MIT license here:
      http://people.apache.org/~bago/third-party/

      I compared the content of "my" wrapper with the content in the "org\codehaus\mojo\appassembler\daemon\jsw" folder inside the org.codehaus.mojo/appassembler-maven-plugin-1.0.jar maven plugin (the files our build process includes in the binary) and they are bitwise identical.

      So we have to review the lib folder from the current trunk and make sure we correclty identify LICENSE/NOTICE requirement for them (for sure we have to add the MIT licensing for the tanuki wrapper code we include, but probably we have other artifacts to be attributed to the copyright holders and the respective licenses under we redistribute them).
