Re: [spdx-tech] Advice/guidance/input from the SPDX community for Arch Linux

My feedback (and feel free to pass this onto their list) would be to ensure they adopt SPDX Expressions (https://spdx.org/spdx-specification-21-web-version#h.jxpfx0ykyb60) rather than accepting a single SPDX license id (which is often overly simplistic) or an array (which is ambiguous as to whether it means AND or OR). There are a number of parsers out there for this format.

Regards,
William Bartholomew

Hi,

The Arch Linux community recently started a discussion around adopting
SPDX license identifiers to simplify/improve their license handling:

I imagine that the SPDX community may be interested in chiming in if
there are any known pitfalls on doing so, or general advice around it.

Cheers!
