Subject: font licenses from Fedora submitted to SPDX License List

Hi all,

I’m posting this to both SPDX-legal and Fedora-legal.

I have just finished doing a compare of all the “good” font licenses for Fedora with the SPDX License List. As a result, I have submitted 4 new license to SPDX. See (specifically, Issues 1404, 1405, 1406, and 1407) 

There are still two more “good” font licenses that may need to be added, but need a bit of research (e.g., looking for the license text in the actual source files of the packages) first.  If anyone wants to help with that, let me know!

SPDX-legal - note that the criteria for font licenses to be considered “good” for Fedora is slightly more relaxed than the license for software. I still believe they will all fall squarely within the SPDX license inclusion guidelines.

Fedora-legal - once these issue show as “Accepted” SPDX will need some help creating the PR with the actual files. If anyone out there wants to help there, that would be great!
