Subject [jira] [Created] (RAT-179) Maven plugin does not support adding extra approved licences
Date Tue, 16 Sep 2014 23:12:34 GMT
Sebb created RAT-179:
------------------------

             Summary: Maven plugin does not support adding extra approved licences
                 Key: RAT-179
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RAT-179
             Project: Apache Rat
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sebb


Users can add new license types using the <licenses> tag.

These are not added to the approved licenses list.
This has to be done through the <licenseFamilies> tag.

However, the entries replace the defaults.
There does not appear to be any way to update the approved list other than replacing it entirely,
which is very inconvenient.

This could be fixed by adding a new property analagous to addDefaultLicenseMatchers, e.g.
addDefaultLicenseFamilies

Or it might be easier for the user to configure if individual <license> entries could
be tagged as approved. The default would need to be false for backwards compatibility.
