Greetings legal team,
I’m working on updating software which generates the website and license list data to include the status of the “Other web pages” links for the licenses. I have a couple of questions for those interested in the license website look and feel.
My plan is if the URL is no longer live, we will remove the hyperlink and only display the text. I will also append “[No longer live, last checked date]” after the URL text string. Below is an example:
Let me know if this formatting is OK. I don’t think I’ll have time for fancy HTML formatting, but I can easily change the text. Of course, if someone with good HTML skills would like to contribute – the template for this file can be found at https://github.com/spdx/LicenseListPublisher/blob/master/resources/htmlTemplate/LicenseHTMLTemplate.html
There are several other fields about the URL which is available in the JSON (and other) license data formats. I do not have any plans to display these values on the website for this release.
I’m planning on treating redirected web pages as live pages (turns out there is a very large number of permanent redirects in the URLs). Let me know if you disagree with this approach.
