while adding identifiers to licenses used in the BSP (note: i am a
legal trainee, so wording may not be technical perfect), i stumbled
upon the The Open Group License, which does not have an identifier yet.
It is used in: xorg-app-iceauth, xorg-app-rgb, xorg-app-xauth, xorg-
app-xdm, xorg-app-xinit, xorg-app-xprop, xorg-app-xrdb, xorg-app-xset,
xorg-app-xsetroot, xorg-app-xvinfo (and maybe some more).
The wording is consistent the following (copyright holder is always The
Copyright <yyyy, yyyy> <Copyright Holder>
Permission to use, copy, modify, distribute, and sell this software and
its documentation for any purpose is hereby granted without fee,
provided that the above copyright notice appear in all copies and that

The first paragraph is different from X11-License, therefore i do not
want to use the X11-identifier:
> Permission to use, copy, modify, distribute,
as in curl; no "including without limitation" like X11
> and sell this software and its documentation
software and documentation are not together defined as "the software"
and therefore more divided than in X11-License
> for any purpose is hereby granted without fee, provided

X11 does not require appearance in documentation, but in substantial
parts of software.
I am hoping that you can add the License to the license list so it may
gain an identifier.
