Will there be an option to use fuzzy matching showing the differences?
While it’d be nice if licenses exactly matched, the concern would be if we
had something that almost completely matched. You mentioned other tools
that report close matches, but I wasn’t aware of any that did that for the
SPDX license list.
The scancode-toolkit reports exact and approximate matches for all SPDX
licenses (and a few more licenses). It also can collects the matched texts
and report the scans either as SPDX or JSON.

Note: I am its maintainer.
