             Summary: Add "Open-source licenses" to menu
                 Key: TAVERNA-1012
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAVERNA-1012
             Project: Apache Taverna
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Taverna Mobile
            Reporter: Stian Soiland-Reyes
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For:  mobile 1.0.0


As discussed on 
[dev@taverna|https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/b374b2aa60af1231cd63bf405ed7a3fa557d5882d958e0bfd334f5bb@%3Cdev.taverna.apache.org%3E]:

Add a menu item, something like

> Settings -> Help & feedback -> Open-source licenses

to show the LICENSE.txt and NOTICE.txt

including those we are required to propagate from third-party libraries bundled 
inside the .apk.

To check what we are required to propagate it should be sufficient to check the 
licenses of our dependencies and look if the inside of the JARs already have a 
NOTICE or LICENSE file or similar.  

(E.g. an Apache-licensed JAR with no NOTICE file? Nothing more to do.  A JAR 
with a BSD-3 LICENSE file? We need to show that)

Sadly tooling for this is still a bit abysmal, so we probably have to create 
that text file manually.
