First, addons.mozilla.org do now have a (optional) license field for addons. As far as I can tell you can't yet use it as a search filter, and I don't know how the addon finder service works, but it looks like they did listen after all. See the addon https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/11249 for an example of the field in action.

Great! That opens the door to automatically build the free add-ons list. I wonder what brought on this change and who we can thank for it.

I learnt from the FAQ page that is linked to from that addon page that they actually review add-ons before they go on AMO. I hope that will include verifying the license field in the future. If that field can be trusted then there would be no need for GNUzilla contributors to verify the individual files in the addons and the list could be built automatically.
