How are "duplicated license" detected?
If they are the same in source package and sub package.

Hmm. But I prefer to see the explicit license in every sub-package,
because I explicitely checked it. With all the different licenses
in the GCC sub-packages for example it becomes hard to track what
licenses to change otherwise.

Can we remove those duplicated licenses only if _all_ sub-packages
have the same license please?

A more helpful rule would be:
- either all sub-packages implicitly inherit their license from the main
package, or
- all subpackages explicitly spell out their license.

This avoids the doubt weather a license string of some sub package
was forgotten or intentionally implicit. Coolos new logic appears
to actually create more of this doubt, if I get it right.
