      Description

      Maven has a nice section to describe the license the artifact is released under. For instance:

      <license>
      <name>The Apache Software License, Version 2.0</name>
      <url>http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.txt</url>
      <distribution>repo</distribution>
      </license>

      This was copied from Cargo: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/CARGO-835

      This is useful to projects that use license-checking tools to validate that dependencies are licensed in a manner acceptable to the project.

      This is also useful for generating license reports for a project.
