[Slackbuilds-users] Feature request

How about a variable in .info which identifies the type of license(s) used
in the package to be built? Something like




where "free" would indicate that the package only contains free software.
The inclusion of this variable can be made optional.

This will be transparent to those who want to keep using Slackbuilds the
same way as before, but it will also provide utility to everyone. With
only a modest effort from each maintainer, every user will be able to quickly
check the license type of a package without chasing down the sources. Moreover,
automated license management will become possible.
