Forgot to note: applied 0001, and 0003 in hrev47550. I currently don't have the time to look into 0002 to see if it's correct. Maybe someone else could do that in the mean time.

I'm not sure it's wise to remove credits for 3rd party software that Haiku relies on in order to function. In several cases (such as FreeType), those credits were added per the license requirements. Considering that those packages are pre-installed with Haiku in order for it to function (even if they're separate packages), it makes sense to just include them in our AboutSystem. Our packaging solution does not disclaim us from this.

I'd say that AboutSystem should gather the license info from the installed packages. If not from all packages, then at least from the ones the haiku system packages depend on.

Fine with me. This ticket can be closed as fixed then.
