I have this opensource code with MIT license that uses an Apache 2.0 licensed library.
I want to include this in my project, so it can be built right away.
In the point 4 of that license explains how to redistribute it:
4 . Redistribution. You may reproduce and distribute copies of the Work or Derivative Works thereof in any medium, with or without modifications, and in Source or Object form, provided that You meet the following conditions:
You must give any other recipients of the Work or Derivative Works a copy of this License; and

You must retain, in the Source form of any Derivative Works that You distribute, all copyright, patent, trademark, and attribution notices from the Source form of the Work, excluding those notices that do not pertain to any part of the Derivative Works; and
If the Work includes a "NOTICE" text file as part of its distribution, then any Derivative Works that You distribute must include a readable copy of the attribution notices contained within such NOTICE file, excluding those notices that do not pertain to any part of the Derivative Works, in at least one of the following places: within a NOTICE text file distributed as part of the Derivative Works; within the Source form or documentation, if provided along with the Derivative Works; or, within a display generated by the Derivative Works, if and wherever such third-party notices normally appear.

I'm not creating a derivative work ( I plan to provide it as it is ).
I don't have a NOTICE file, just my my own LICENSE.txt file.
Question: Where should I put something along the lines: "This project uses Xyz library distributed under Apache2.0 ..."? What's recommented?
Should I provide the apache license file too? Or would be enough if I just say "Find the license online here...http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.html"
I hope someone who has done this in the past may shed some light on the matter.
