Re: Options for metadata license identifiers
Hi Richard,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
My question is what to put in the recipe to identify the license?[G.O.] How about using the SPDX tag/value terms defined for SPDX documents?
You would use "PackageLicenseDeclared: " for the package itself (see https://spdx.github.io/spdx-spec/3-package-information/#315-declared-license).
There are a couple of advantages to this approach - there is a specific definition for the term and the consistency in syntax makes the tooling a bit easier.
As far as patches, if these are specific files and you have a way to associate the field with that specific file, you could use the term "LicenseInfoInFile: "
