Hi Matija, I think that if there is a desire for an Internet Archive link,
that's probably most easily handled by a PR to the particular license XML
file in https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML to add to (not replace)
the cross-references.
Having it as an additional link makes sense to me.

I don't expect that the publisher tool will
automatically add them in, or that the license list maintainers will hunt
for replacement links across all licenses -- but if the community submits
PRs to supplement with links for particular licenses, I think those would
be merged.
I mentioned it because as soon as you have original URL and a timestamp, you
can simply generate an Internet Archive URL as such:

http://web.archive.org/web/{$timestamp}/{$original_url}

Using Gary’s example, all you need to do is to translate:


* https://notvalidopensource.org/licenses/EUPL-1.1 [no longer live -
last checked 2020-11-13 - 05:57:04]

to

http://web.archive.org/web/20201113055704/https://notvalidopensource.org/
licenses/EUPL-1.1

And the cool thing is that if the Internet Archive does not have that exact
timestamp, it will just link to the first snapshot earlier than that.

cheers,
Matija
