I don’t have a direct example of one such file off top of my head, but
looking at the large reported chromium issue[1], I see there are a
number of open blocking issues linked to that one.  Also, I was looking
at [2] and [3] from a little over a year ago, which included the results
of running licensecheck on the chromium tree, but I wasn’t able to
download any of the resulting txt files there.  So I thought I’d clone a
fresh copy of chromium and run licensecheck from the Debian Stretch repo
on all the files as follows:

git clone --depth 1
cd src
git rev-parse HEAD  # result: eda06a0b859a08d15a1ab6a6850e42e667530f0b
licensecheck -c '.*' -r * > ../licensecheck-chromium-eda06a0b859a.txt

I’ve attached a gzipped version of the above text file.  Granted, there
are caveats: firstly, that the above invocation of licensecheck examines
/all/ of the files in the repo, including test html files which are not
relevant and should be filtered out; and secondly, the output contains a
very large number of “UNKNOWN” results which may be false positives.

Link [3] mentioned running FSD Script Aid on the chromium tree as well,
but I don’t have enough time at the moment to do so.

Hope this is of some help.
