LibreJS makes an attempt to recognize some versions of common JavaScript
libraries, but it's unreliable because there are so many. jQuery is the
only library that's up to date with the latest versions at the
moment. Since I don't use mootools myself, I haven't paid close
attention to keeping these up to date. It's best to tell LibreJS
explicitly what license each file is using a JS Web Labels page.

I'm looking into why LibreJS isn't parsing your @licbegin blocks. In the
meantime, if you have time you can instead make a web labels page for

If they are referring to the license as MIT, it probably doesn't matter
whether you use Expat or X11. For example, I'm listing jQuery as Expat
on this web labels page:


For your issues with, first of all I would add a
@licbegin block to the main page, to catch all the JavaScript that's in
the HTML for that page. For an example, look at the source of Then, I would add a web labels page for LibreJS to
recognize all the nontrivial scripts on the page.

I know it's annoying to have to add the licensing a certain way --
LibreJS should be more flexible. Hopefully this stuff with will help me improve this.
