Re: NTP/old style MIT licenses
toggle quoted message Show quoted text
From a quick look at the licenses on the license list, I see a couple that are close, but which would be considered different licenses under the SPDX matching guidelines :
* NTP  -- very similar but contains some additional non-optional text that isn't in the one you sent (e.g. requirements around copyright notices)
* HPND  -- similar to NTP but also includes second all-caps disclaimer paragraph
Given that NTP and HPND appear to require reproduction of copyright notices, and the one you sent doesn't appear to require it, I'd say that most likely it would be considered substantively different from those, given the way the SPDX legal team looks at licenses. In other words, probably makes sense to add this to the license list as a separate entry.
If you want to submit an issue for this to the license-list-XML repo , that would be excellent :)
