The best way to access 3rd Party OSS Dependencies is by accessing the About page within your own Jenkins instance: http://jenkins_url:jenkins_port/about/

The bottom of the page lists all of the installed plugins and you can review their license by clicking on the provided link.

However, the Active-Choices plugin does not include a license. Perhaps the formatting of the license file on GitHub is wrong?

Oh, good catch Ioannis.

Might be easy to fix, probably by looking at one of the other plug-ins that correctly display a license.

I'm looking at our testing server, and the Mailer Plug-in displays the MIT License correctly in the about page. By clicking on the plug-in name, and going to the Wiki page, the source code points to https://github.com/jenkinsci/mailer-plugin

The mailer-plugin does not have a LICENSE.txt. So I suspect what we are missing is the <license> tag in pom.xml.


Hopefully that should add the correct license after the next release.

Thanks
Bruno
