As far as I can see only test files do not have (or have incorrect)
license headers.

It is. I have one question though:
How non text/plain files are supposed to be handled regarding the license ?
For example Archive/tests/data/ is an
file, does it require
any license header as well ? If so adding a license for that kind of
document might break
a couple of tests.

Would it be acceptable for you to use the reviewboard instance ?

Thanks :)
