What did you see instead?

A notice that says godoc could not identify the license for the package. Package is licensed Apache-2.0, which is on the list of accepted licenses.

The reason we did not identify a license is because the zip file returned by doesn't contain that license file, though I'm not sure why.

/cc @katiehockman @hyangah @heschik for input on this.

This module uses the major directory (not major branch) model, so its files are here: and there is no license there.

I don't think there's anything for the pkgsite team to do here, so closing.
