+EFL comes with several licences. Different shared libraries are
+covered by different licenses, and are distributed here as an
+aggregation with a single build system. Listed below are the library/project
+names and the license file covering it. Note that this license would
+cover all of the source invovled in each project (src/lib/PROJECT,
+src/modules/PROJECT, src/bin/PROJECT data/PROJECT) unless specifically
+noted otherwise (eg epp in edje or lz4, libunibreak etc.), so please
+refer to these imported project sources for details (but be aware that
+the licensing of such libraries is compatible with the libraries that
+use them and is not more restrictive).
