SPDX Tools - update bookmark and request for review and feedback

Gary O'Neall

Greetings SPDX Tech and SPDX legal teams,


A new URL for the SPDX online tools is now be available at https://tools.spdx.org.  Please change any bookmarks or links from http://spdxtools.sourceauditor.com or to https://tools.spdx.org.


A new version of the online SPDX implementing several enhancements and an improved deployment infrastructure is currently in test.


Once the testing and the upgrade is complete in 2 to 4 weeks, http://spdxtools.sourceauditor.com and will no longer be available.


The new version has the following enhancements:


  • License submittals will now check for existing license matches
    • If there is an exact match, the application will inform the user and not accept the new submittal
    • If there is a close match, the user is presented with the differences and can chose to submit an issue that the licenses should match, or chose to submit a new license request
  • A higher performance license matching implementation
  • A license namespace registry has been added to allow organizations to submit license namespace requests
  • Various application enhancements and fixes


Please feel free to check out and test the new version at


If you find any issues or would like to request any enhancements, please add them to the spdx-online-tools Issues list.


Thanks to the many students, mentors and SPDX team members who have contributed to the online tools including Rohit  who was the originator of the online tools and mentor to many students, Smith who contributed the namespace functionality, Umang who implemented the improved license submittal, Mehant who contributed the Docker deployment implementation, and Steve who help us obtain the new URL.


Feel free to email me if you have any question or feedback.
