    Description

      While preparing Maven distribution, maven-remote-resources-plugin uses appended-resources/META-INF/LICENSE.vm to add content to LICENSE and try to download licenses for all dependencies that are not Apache licensed (see end of LICENSE and resulting lib/*.license in Maven binary distribution, since Maven 3.2.1 MNG-5494).

      License file is not downloaded only when project/license/name is strictly equal to "The Apache Software License, Version 2.0": this is too restrictive, as we see Apache license downloaded many times from https://www.apache.org/ (causing some issues with https: MNG-6358). 

      After debugging these cases, additional patterns for Apache license exist and need to be added to exception list in appended-resources/META-INF/LICENSE.vm:

      • "Apache License, Version 2.0"
      • "The Apache Software License, Version 2.0"
      • "ASLv2"
      • "Apache Public License 2.0"
