If they did it it. I have not opened all the files to be honest, but
is this something we can rely on (that they have done their job

Thanks! I opened the jar from the Syncope war, there was no info included.

Is that compatible? "Indiana University Extreme! Lab Software License"
I think its fine, but I am not very good with that boring stuff:

Btw, this phrase is interesting:
"Redistributions in binary form must reproduce the above copyright notice"

This includes the provided war file. There is no copyright notice of
XPP and my guess is the license holders are not interested if we are
having it as transitive lib or not.
