I've been working through the 0.3 release candidate fixing problems with 
licenses. I'm wondering if everyone knows how to check for 
missing/incorrect licenses?

In case you don't, this is what I use:

mvn rat:check -fn
find . -name rat.txt | xargs grep \!\?\?

This gets a list of files with missing licenses.

You can also use

mvn -Prat install

This also checks for missing licenses and it's slightly more intelligent in that it recognises
that things like MANIFEST.MF can be ignored.
It's also quite a memorable name for a flag.

Checking occasionally would would make life a lot easier for the next person who does a release
