No License file for this project

Unless I'm missing something, there is no indication what license you intend to distribute this code under. MIT? BSD? LGPL? Apache?

I would suggest placing a file called License.txt at the root level of this project with a notation indicating what license you prefer; also, a statement on the javapoly.com website would be great, too!

In my company, we are very careful to respect the author's intentions regarding how they want their code to be used, so we need to see a license file to understand your intentions.

Thank you!

    Hi Scott! Thanks for checking!

    Honestly, we're building this software because we want to contribute it to the world under a permissive open source license. BSD License below is fine, assuming it doesn't create any license conflicts with dependencies.

    @jimsproch Should I go ahead and add that in the LICENSE file?
