Your expectation is so far removed from our current practise that I
hardly see where to start.

So if there is a problem, shouldn't we start to solve it instead of just ignoring it? Wouldn't it be better to set high standards instead of being guided by convenience?

It seems that doing this license tracking properly is beyond our
capacity.

No, one must just be aware of the problem. Nobody said that everything must be fine by tomorrow.

IMO dh_doxygen should sort this out.

I see one person calling for this and no consensus.

Isn't policy enough consensus?
