I've attached output from the script run over an SVN checkout. I like
the svn repo structure - as you can see in the output, we can tell
which trunk PKGBUILDs are screwy, but also which ones in the repos are
screwy too (ie. if someone updated the trunk PKGBUILD, but hasn't
pushed the license out to the repos, we can easily see that.)
It's a bit verbose, but only because SO many packages are missing
licenses or have improper entries.
The script that generated this list is /home/travis/find-bad-licenses
run from /home/abs/checkout
