Contributing Licensing Information
When adding licensing information for a formula, please make a single PR for adding just that formula's licensing information. There should be a 1:1 mapping of PRs to licensing data changes. This does add some manual toil creating a PR for a small change, but it allows the project to have an easy way to track each formula's licensing information.
