ExLicense - License header injector

Hello.

I have just published a new package named ex_license to manage license headers injection in the Elixir code source files.

While repositories can have a LICENSE file, nothing prevent someone to take a file and use it without restriction.
In other programming languages C, Go, … there are often tooling to inject headers of license but not in Elixir.

So this library embeds a mix task, to inject or to verify (usable in CI), to ensure an Elixir project maintains license headers.

To avoid the burden and uglify code file, it uses the SPDX convention which points a license with its ID

Thanks!
