I will specifically list license information when its vital to clarify (see: 
gopher://\Begin_Here\References\License for example).  
However in most cases the "readme" files included with the software already go 
into great detail about the license, so I simply group software into one of the 
following three general categories in their "About.txt" file just to give 
people an idea of what the included license seems to say:
  Freeware = Software which has been given to the public free of charge
  Shareware = Fully functional software that you are allowed to try before you 
buy, but which MUST be purchased at some point.
  Abandonware = Software to which the owner has implied should be Freeware, but 
to which the owner has not bothered to make a public statement to that effect 
(and in most cases cannot even be contacted to make a statement).
  As always, should you want to contribute to JumpJet (such as offering 
downloads, suggesting links to Gopher Jewels 2, commenting on changing 
documentation, etc.), we are awaiting your email:

Just a suggestion: Would it be possible to add licence information for 
these software? Some of them are free & open source under GPL, others 
probably simple Freeware. So merely "Freeware" is probably not enough.

Happy new year to all.
