To get a license file, I followed the steps below:
- I clicked “Create new file” on the repo’s main page.
- I named the file “LICENSE.txt”, then clicked on the “Choose a license template” button.
- I chose the MIT license, clicked the “Review and submit” button.
I commited the exact output (not from the GitHub UI, I created the file locally and commited that) but GitHub doesn’t show the license in the repo header. It also doesn’t display the license summary when I open the file itself.
What can I do to make GitHub recognize my standard MIT license?
