Subject Re: Bundling an AL Font

Hard to be completely prescriptive... I don't recall an explicit discussion
on this point.

Anyway, the LICENSE update isn't strictly required (and is not required by
the instructions). I find it to be convenient, when consuming artifacts.
Others may have their opinions... When looking for license information, I
wouldn't be looking in the README, but that's your project's decision...
