Hi Richard, thanks for the detailed explanation -- I think IThanks, so to summarise, the answer is that:
a) there are no SPDX identifiers for the license of a license text
b) there are no plans to add any
c) we can create our own namespace as mentioned above and remain
So we can use "LicenseRef-GPL-3.0-license-text" and similar and move forward from there.
If others ask, it would be good if we can at least try and use a common convention for it too. This is now in the mail archives which should help. We'll recommend this as a standard within the Yocto Project.
Thanks for the help/pointers!
