Hello Chris and Joel,

I agree that this script is an ugly one. It has been hacked together
when I needed to import the license files and I didn't wanted to throw
it out of the window because I thought it might could be useful to find
some more missing license files in the future.

Please note that this script is already on master since quite a long
time and that I only cherry-picked the commits for the 5-freebsd-12
branch (and adapted the import patch to import the right version). So
thanks for the suggestions Joel but shouldn't these changes then be an
extra patch? Chris: You mentioned that libbsd.py should be taught to
handle licenses. Do you plan anything into that direction? In that case
touching the script wouldn't be really useful.

Best regards
