Yes. We are aware. The simple fact is that there are lots of things to change, and all of us are busy. Considering that it is VERY low priority, no one has got to it.
You are more than welcome to submit a patch that does this if you think it can be done faster.
maybe you do it already, but just in case you don't, if you don't have time for tasks a "monkey" could do, maybe you could advertise it somewhere and I am sure there would be people willing to help. Since you're the Boss - delegate ;-)
I think one of the issues with licensing is not the actual "doing it" but the fact that it would entail a new release of the package and they don't want to force everyone to download the packages just for a minor change in the PKGBUILD. The idea is that whenever a new version of a package is released, the license field should be updated as well. Slowly with rolling release, we'll end up with all packages having licenses.
