      Description

      Now that we have metadata in each installable package tarball, that metadata should be the one source of truth for such information as the license and license_file. These things must be known by the package creator; but there is no reason why a package consumer must go and look them up before adding the installable to autobuild.xml.

      Whatever autobuild logic uses the license and license_file information should be changed to find those items in the installed package metadata. We should eliminate, or at least deprecate, the idea of specifying those items at 'installables add' time.
