Summary:
Validate Library Licenses

Detailed description:
I will start with an example. A project uses several libraries. Some of them are just GPL and other ones are LGPL. Then, if the project uses libraries with those type of licenses, the project has to have a GPL license. So, it could be interesnting if the application check the licenses for the libraries and gives an advise about the license that is being used. It could be done if the appllication (OSLC) takes a jar (e.g. logback), search de corresponding license in the file, and then associate that jar (library) with the found license. Then, it OSLC takes every single library, then, it can evaluate if the current license is according with the set of licenses.
