Search for .licenseheader file recursively


  1. Would be nice to be able to specify the .licenseheader file once for the whole solution. Currently it requires each project to link the .licenseheader file.
  2. There might be folders in the project where files contain their own license - in such case it should pick up the .licenseheader file from that folder.

  1. Is this (having to link to the file rather than a "solution default") really much of a problem?
  2. I think supporting definition files just for specific folders (and their subfolders) is a very good idea. For simplicity, I'd probably like this feature to be implemented so that the definition file within a subfolder completely overrides the definition file at a higher level. (Rather than only overriding those extensions given in the file within in the subfolder, but keeping the rest from above.)

Fixed, but for now without solution-wide definition files. Create a separate feature request if this is still an issue.
