Hi folks,

I am trying to automate the collection and use of license files in my 
build process. eg, suppose I have project A which depends on the modules 
apache/commons-lang and apache/commons-logging. I need to include both 
of these licenses in project A somehow when I distribute it.

I've seen this:

I'm now wondering how best to use it. Presumably, I should modify the 
ivy.xml for all the modules that have licenses, and add in the <license> 
tag as a first step =). Is there anything built in to Ivy to retrieve 
the data from the specified URLs? Perhaps I need to write something to 
parse the Ivy XML reports and retrieve all the licenses?

Alternatively, I have considered possibly doing this using <conf 
name="license" description="License files"/>, and associating the 
license files for each project with that configuration. That seems like 
it'd be kind of irritating to implement though.

Anyone have any suggestions for me?
