Packit is awesome, it really does help to automate lots of menial tasks,
but the risk really is that maintainers forget to do their due diligence
before merging the PRs and all that.

I guess it should be possible to make packit (or the-new-hotness?) run
licensecheck on the new sources and include that in the PR comment too,
perhaps also with a list of packages that depend on the one being
updated as an "impact check"?
