Description of problem:
As package maintainer I've come across many packages, which does not include LICENSE in their source tarball. Most of the licenses, however, require it to be distributed along with the source code (and binaries as well). I see that setuptools already automagically includes READMEs. So why not to include LICENSEs too?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

I have no objection to this, but I would prefer upstream merge it (or at least say they intend to) before we carry it.
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 14:09:04 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
