Hi all,

Let me start with IANAL :)

At the ASF, the root directory of each project has a NOTICE file (same
directory as the LICENSE) file. This file is for collecting copyright,
attribution etc. and per the Apache License 2.0 (Section 4.d) [1]
requires those who create derivative works using our code to carry
those along as well. Please see the following examples.


Do we have a mechanism that serves the same purpose? Should we adopt
this practice?
