   * Don't warn about missing license file for public domain packages
   Fixes ticket #247.
   The whole concept of public domain as a license is also rather dodgy. In
   many legal jurisdictions it has no legal meaning and where it does one
   usually has to disclaim any copyright interest explicitly.
