The BSD boilerplate from imported Chromium code (for electrolysis) needs to be added to about:license.

bent, it appears that we didn't import the LICENSE file from chromium along with the code (the BSD header references a LICENSE file). Could you find and import that file so that gerv can make the necessary changes to about:license?
Added mozilla/ipc/chromium/src/LICENSE in changeset 7d9f0fb8ccda.

It's not just Chromium either... ipc/chromium/src/third_party/libevent/ has a completely different license than what Chromium normally uses. There may be others, too.

Here's a patch adding the Chromium and libevent licenses. Has anyone found any more? I had a poke around the ipc/ directory and couldn't find any.

I will take silence as denial. Fixed on trunk:
