NOTICE file update when bundling an apache 2.0 licensed dependency

Willem Jiang
Hi,

I just have quick question about Update the top-level NOTICE file.

When bunding the ASF Product, we need to put the copyright into the NOTICE
file[1].
For the other ASF Licensed bundled dependency , we need to analyzed the
NOTICE file[2].
But I checked modifications to NOTICE, it just says about  the Copyright
relocated issue[3]. I'm not sure if we still need to put bundled
dependencies NOTICE information into the top-level NOTICE file.

I found lots Apache project just put the Licenses information into the
NOTICE file
Is there an good example to show us how to update the top-level NOTICE file?

For those who may have the same question like me,  here is the legal
discussion[1] in the Apache which shows some example.
