Took a look at the output - it looks good, but I only see "No license"
messages - nothing that checks for the validity of entries within the
licenses array, which was what my script checked.  For example, it
ensured that the items in the array were either licenses contained in
/usr/share/licenses/common or "custom" - and that the ones using a
"custom" license referenced /usr/share/licenses somewhere in their
build() function.
