This was a quick project I made to automate what I was doing manually for months. It's a bot that crawls Github for projects without any license, and asks the owner to add a license. Github is full of "open source" project that carry no explicit license. This bot will create an issue in repositories that are missing a license. Why are licensed important in an open source project (on Github)? > Generally speaking, the absence of a license means that the default copyright laws apply. This means that you retain all rights to your source code and that nobody else may reproduce, distribute, or create derivative works from your work. This might not be what you intend. Source:

@misbahspeaks glad you like it. I do think README is the most important part of an open source project. Wrote about it here:
