There is still no policy for that (or please point me to the policy
document). However, iirc the files in the CXF tar ball are generated
based on the sub modules in the repository during the build. Hence the
path to these files should be clear.

Not having the LICENSE in the root repository folder doesn't make it
unlicensed. It makes it unclear to the person checking out the code
directly.
