      Description

      A licenses section should be added to the velocity poms. It should look something like:

      <licenses>
      <license>
      <name>The Apache Software License, Version 2.0</name>
      <url>http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.txt</url>
      <distribution>repo</distribution>
      </license>
      </licenses>

      The maven team is working on using that information in several plugins to help validate releases. (Example: there could be an apache validate plugin that makes sure all the licenses of dependencies are OK for apache to release)
