Re: versioning of license list

One note just for consideration here: the version numbering for the License List has at least a syntactic meaning also within the spec itself, for SPDX documents: see https://spdx.github.io/spdx-spec/document-creation-information/#67-license-list-version-field
That defines it as a "Major.Minor" format. That could be changed for a future release of the SPDX spec of course, but I expect that would be a breaking change if it went to something like semver.
So I'd be inclined to stick with the current M.N format for now, and keep incrementing 3.x unless and until we hit a significant enough change to bump it to 4.0.
At four releases a year, that should give us *does some quick math* roughly another 20 years before we hit a Y2K issue with the minor version number, so I think we should be fine for now :)
