Subject Re: License collection
Date Sat, 22 Jan 2011 04:01:51 GMT
Hi,

Thank you all for replying.

As Stevo mentioned I'm using maven-license-plugin to generate headers as
well. But I need to include the licenses of the dependencies I'm using in
order to distribute my software. I believe it would be great if developers
include the license in the license tag in order for plugins to collect and
download them. The behavior would be something like the described here:

http://mojo.codehaus.org/license-maven-plugin/

like Wayne mentioned. As far as I can see there's no simple approach to do
this, so I believe I will use the report plugin and collect them myself with
my bare hands :p

Anyway, thank you for your time!
