Also part of the BSD and MIT licences include a copyright line and this will vary with each

It may be that this files include 3rd party code under different licenses or the file itself
is under multiple licenses. If it was under multiple licenses you would generally select which
one you want to use. If not then each of those pieces of 3rd party code is likely to have
its own name and copyright holder (for MIT and BSD licenses) which need to be included or
pointed to by the LICENSE file.

This resource gives a single MIT license:

Good catch as that file was in the .rat-excludes. This font is Class B and should not be included.
Heron will need to find another Serif Font.

A review of the .rat-excludes is needed.
