Re: Licensecheck returns UNKOWN, but it's GPL

I'm sure on my system it doesn't check files with names ending in '.h'

In an empty dir do:
$ touch lc.h && touch lc.c
$ licensecheck *
it returns
lc.c: *No copyright* UNKNOWN
and nothing about lc.h
If I explicitly licensecheck lc.h, it returns
"lc.h: *No copyright* UNKNOWN"

I just don't know if behaviour is intended.

I'll ping upstream to get clarifications...
