However rat may not tell if the contents are actually correct. The Rat configuration in the
project may also be incorrect.

While rat helps with this it doesn't pick up everything, there's often noise from generated
files, some binaries may be ok and others not even of the same format (eg images) and license
headers can be changed.

While rat is a useful tool it's output generally needs to be looked at/double checked by a
human.

Thanks,
Justin
