Thanks for the reply, Kaiting. I actually understand what license is for
each packages. My question is if, in the PKGBUILD, I should set a
folder/symlink for each package in /usr/share/licenses/$pkgname

For example: package is LGPL. I have "license" package installed. Should I
symilink from common/LGPL folder to ${pkgname} ? Or do nothing - and leave
as it is?
