No, but the legal aspect isn't necessarily the concept
looming largest in a developer's mind.  So a simple checkbox
on the page (I'll do it myself in a few minutes, if I figure
out how to frob the site) to the effect of: 'Have the
licences of any/all bundled code been identified and noted
in the release?  Has a NOTICE file been included that
summarises them and their requirements where they differ
from the Apache licence's?  Have their requirements been
met?' would, IMHO, be a goodness.
