That should be in the Next EULA (which will be released with the next
actual update of the package) They also posted on their Github issue
tracker that the game will display the license the first time it is run.

I will do what I did before and forward it to you and you can send it
off to the Private arch-dev mailing list instead revealing the Valve
lawyers email address.

Also as a side note, I have been emailing back and forth with the Steam
dev all night.  And steam should (soon) be running on only libraries
that it ships.
