That looks like a great list to package. I'll need input on the
repository license status from the legal team as it could be ambiguous

[Add top level license to license list code and files][1]
[Clarify under which license the license list itself is licensed][2].

Thanks for the pointers. Although my particular use case stops to new
projects, it could certainly be expended to benefit license checkers.
