The more practical and pragmatic question to pose is: why would you
want to add license headers to generated files. You would have to take
care of that they won't disappear each time the file (e.g. .classpath)
is getting re-generated. Again from a practical point of view a
mentoring suggestion could be to suggest moving such configuration
settings over to Maven over the course of time and let Maven generate
the Eclipse project-specific files.

Cheers
Daniel

I can't see any reason why they could not be part of a source release either. However, I do
think they need a proper license header (the file I quickly checked [1] did not have that).
I'm not aware of a way to tell Eclipse to add such headers automatically, so you might have
to do that by hand or some script.
