Getting it into elx-license in source code format is of course great but I
would start with just looking at a few packages as suggested to find out if
there is an overall picture, if there is any new license patterns to grep for
so to speak.

I'm initializing/updating the epkgs/mirror now so if you could provide me with
a list of the interesting packages it would be most helpful and speed things
