Re: [p2-dev] License approval

Thomas,

IANAL, but the license is a contract between the copyright holder and
the user. The license might be the same for several plugins, but not the
copyright holder.

This is probably why you cannot just disable presenting EPL licenses
when you install EPL licensed software on an EPL platform.

Directly on the download page:

"All downloads are provided under the terms and conditions of the
Eclipse Foundation Software User Agreement unless otherwise specified."
