I can't now find the (old) tickets.  Could be I am senile, but in any
case this should work with current released versions of the plugins. 
Are you having trouble getting the LICENSE into the jar or the dist,
or both?  Is it in the top level directory?  Is it a multiproject?

NOTICE.txt still needs to be added explicity as a jar resource, IIRC.

OK...I *am* senile.  Just found the ticket that I had in mind:
This was for the ant plugin (ironic in this thread ;-)

In any case, you should be getting LICENSE.txt in both the jar and
distros with nothing special required.  Probably should take this to
maven user.
