[clc-devel] Software licenses

Now that Simone Rota has committed his datastudio port into contrib, I 
began to wonder if CLC has some sort of policy on what software licenses 
should be allowed in contrib. At least one user was concerned that he 
might accidentally install software which would require a commercial 
license for the purpose he's using it for. I, for one, would find 
something like a "License" field in Pkgfiles useful so that with a quick 
glance one could see under which terms the software is released (GPL, 
BSD...). What do others think?
