Apache provides NOTICE boilerplate for a new software projects which are going to be released under this license. I'm going to release my project under that license, so it actually doesn't contain any code from ASF, but boilerplate states that

This product includes software developed at
The Apache Software Foundation (http://www.apache.org/).

Can I drop this part?
