- license (str): The App may be released under any license selected by the Vendor provided that the license released is compatible with the licenses of the dependent modules, libraries or derivative products. If this field is left blank, the default value is LGPL-3 for Open Source Applications and OPL-1 for Proprietary Source Applications.
