Apparently, the license is present in both the IU that represents the feature group and the IU that represents the feature jar. The latter however, does not seem to be subject to translation.

Personally, I think the feature.jar should contain no such thing as license, copyright, description etc. since it's just an intermediate IU representing the physical jar of the feature. I can open a bugzilla and provide a patch if that's the general opinion.

this is intentional from the UI point of view.
We look through every single IU in the provisioning plan, and if it has a license, we must show it.
See bug https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=218532

So then the question becomes...how are we mapping a feature's license to the metadata generated by the publisher?

Some additional info.

The feature in question is generated using the FeatureAction in the new
publisher.
