Re: [spdx] Adding a new opendata-focus license?

Hi Bastien,

The process for requesting a new license be added to the SPDX License List is documented here: (and happy to get your feedback on the documentation of the process!)

By the way - It looks like you sent this to the general mailing list, not the legal mailing list, as this got caught up in our filter. I have released it (obviously), but you might want to make sure you are actually on the legal mailing list here: (and I’m replying to both lists, but bcc the general list, as we try to keep specific topics to the specific lists)

Dear all,

I'm working for Etalab, the mission for promoting and coordinating
Open Data publications in the french public sector.

The most commonly used license for french open data is the "Open
License", published and maintained by Etalab.  Roughly speaking, it is
equivalent to a CC-by 4.0.  You can read it here:

What is the process to ask and get a SPDX identifier for this license?

I am sorry if the question has been raised before, I have been on this
list since a few months only.

Thanks in advance for any answer!
