While looking at the Webview issue, I found out that they might be other places where proprietary software could hide in Replicant.
While GNU/Linux distributions use a package manager and have a build system around it, Android doesn't have something like that.
Instead it's a collection of git repositories checked out in subdirectories of the same directory.
Since we have no packages, we also have no packages definition with a license.
Since there is no unique way to gather the list of licenses used, I've started doing a quick and dirty script just to see the extent of the damages.
The script will need to be rewritten in python to be more robust.
I will also need to adapt it for Replicant 9.
