        b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each copy of the

Some projects also license their work under the MIT license and don't include
the license text in either LICENSE or anywhere in the header of the respective
source files. I filed the bugs listed below, but please make sure to check
upstream releases for proper licensing in the future.
