--- Begin Message ---Hi Praveen, Quoting Pirate Praveen (2017-08-04 11:25:20) > Currently you have to manually give LICENSE as an option even if you give *. Yes, that is deliberate: In most if not all cases such file is not protected by copyright and therefore no license grant apply. I do understand that such files (obviously) is highly likely to contain descriptions of copyright and licensing of _other_ files, but such descriptions are rarely expressed in a form reliably resolvable by the licensecheck tool. If you find that the information resolved by licensecheck of such files are of use for you, then you are welcome to include them by use of the --ignore option. Since this is not a bug but a feature, I hereby close this bugreport. Closing it still aloows for posting further comments to the bugreport, but reflects that (without substantial convincing) I do not expect to change my opinion on this specific issue.
