Shooting from the hip again Ralph. Precisely because games sometime can
come with pretty dodgy licenses we have added this requirement. Also I
for one say that you are partly right, this should really be in the
standard Packaging Guidelines. Packages should always include the
license unless they are sub-packages in which case the main package
should always include the license.
