It seems that the current way of doing KFV-work by checking only the license often leaves sourceless firmware marked as "free".

Since there are only "few" files which have firmware compared to all files whose license needs to be checked, it might be best to just continue this way, and when licenses of all files have been checked, to separately detect files which contain firmware and then check whether they are sourceless or not.

Detecting firmware should probably be done by a script (is there already such a script which was used to detect firmware in gNS 1.0 ?)

Also the table at
and the file-list
might be useful.

Also, should this be added to "Current projects" page as an additional project so that it's not forgotten?

Any thoughts?
