* since last changes in oe-core LICENSE variable needs to list all licenses used
  by individual packages otherwise bitbake warning like this is shown:
  WARNING: meta-openembedded/meta-oe/recipes-devtools/geany/geany-plugins_1.27.bb: LICENSE_geany-plugins-commander includes licenses (GPLv3) that are not listed in LICENSE
  as possible improvement you can set LICENSE to GPLv2 to all plugins
  which are GPLv2-only, because now they will "inherit" both GPLv2 &
  GPLv3 which sucks as described here:
