List license for libraries and frameworks

Hello
I’m considering moving our company code for a range of sensors to PlatformIO to ease collaborative development.

I see library licensing information was added in 2016: https://github.com/platformio/platformio-core/issues/522
Why isn’t this shown when searching for libraries or even when viewing library details? Github for example shows a label on the start page of each project, also linking to the license file.

Platforms do mention their license, at the very bottom of the right-hand column. Frameworks do not.

My idea is to license some of our code as Apache or equivalent, and some as dual-license GPL and commercial to make sense for the company. It would be important for the users to know the difference.

Not a whole lot of response here. Would the core team be opposed to the GUI listing license information, if someone were to submit a pull request?
