[feature request] AUR listing, license column, license searching

Hi!

Is it possible to add a license search function to the AUR page?
And show the license of the packages in a extra column.

I think that the information about the used license is rather important and in the AUR proprietary and free open source software are mixed together.

What do you think?


Probably the last man who knew how it worked had been tortured to death years before.
Or as soon as it was installed. Killing the creator was a traditional method of patent protection.

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/6510 - this is for pacman, not for AUR, but it's IMHO related.
