Hi Anthony,

Quoting Anthony Ronda (2021-05-07 21:57:52)
Hi, my name is Anthony! I’m a software engineer and small game
publisher in New Jersey. I'm one of several ringleaders at an open
source community for the creation of "virtual tabletop" game tools.
Our membership exploded in the pandemic, and we’re lucky to have an
amazing group of a couple hundred developers as well as artists and
game publishers from all around the world!
Wauw, sounds exciting!

My interest area as it pertains to SPDX-legal: these game communities
need lots of help with license compliance. One of my goals for this
year is to create a “game license compliance” knowledge base that my
community can quickly reference for well-researched facts from
existing credible sources. As a community, we're also creating build
tools that simplify the developer compliance experience so they can
focus on making great software/content/games. Naturally SPDX factors
into that in a big way.

I've also been working on an SPDX proposal that requires the steward's
approval. I'm very excited to be able to share that one in a couple
months!

I look forward to being part of the conversation at SPDX!
You might try get in touch with the Debian Games team - they do not
develop games but have experience with packaging games and as I have
heard games are particularly challenging to ensure only free licenses
are used: https://wiki.debian.org/Games/Team
