      Description

      Hi all,

      we use Jenkins and quite a few of its plugins in our organization. Due to legal reasons we are required to keep track of which licenses any software we use falls under. Generally this is pretty easy.

      However, I'd estimate that less than half of the Jenkins core and plugin components that we use has clear license info (e.g. a license file in a github repo or a license mentioned on http://maven-repository.com). Would it be possible to have a look at this? Or is there perhaps an implicit license that applies when no license is specified?

      The following plugins are ones that I'm having trouble finding a license for:

      ruby-runtime plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/ruby-runtime-plugin
      git plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/git-plugin
      email-ext plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/email-ext-plugin
      rvm plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/rvm-plugin
      github api plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/github-api-plugin
      git client plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/git-client-plugin
      html publisher plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/htmlpublisher-plugin
      maven project plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/maven-plugin/tree/master
      multijob plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/tikal-multijob-plugin
      parameterized trigger plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/parameterized-trigger-plugin
      timestamper plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/timestamper-plugin
      token macro plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/token-macro-plugin
      build name setter plugin https://github.com/jenkinsci/build-name-setter-plugin

      What would be the correct way to go about collecting license information for these? I've opened a few pull requests on github with licensing info for these, but was told that writing a JIRA ticket like this might yield better results.

      Many thanks,
      Tom
