OK.  Hopefully you saw that we also have the file on the dist server:

https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/incubator/odftoolkit/KEYS

Right.  We built with Maven 2.  We have an ornery dependency that
doesn't seem to like Maven 3.  Work-in-progress on that.

In theory RAT/Creadur could call the ODF Toolkit to search for the
license header.

Those are NetBeans IDE files.  We'd need to see if there is a place to
put the license info that would not be over-written each time NetBeans
saves.

If it is the case that these files cannot preserve a license header,
is there another solution, like adding a "nbproject-LICENSE" file in
the same directory, or something like that?
