It looks like I just needed to include <osiApproved>true</osiApproved> 
in the plugin configuration section of the pom for this plugin.  I 
omitted it so it must default to false.

As Lin pointed out, I can update this in the plugin catalog (and I just 
did in my staging repo) ... which results in the correct license info 
being displayed when installing the plugin from the console.  However, 
we usually depend upon these catalog being generated with only minor 
edits.  I guess we could consider this another minor edit but it would 
be nice to have it generate correctly.

If you attempt to install from my staging repo now (with the edit) it 
will indicate it is open source licensed.
