The significant increase in the number of licenses added for this release cycle is particularly due to submissions from the Fedora community, as they continue to identify licenses used in Fedora components and adopt SPDX license identifiers. Many thanks to Richard Fontana and others from the Fedora community for submitting most of these requests, and to Jilayne Lovejoy for drafting the majority of the license XML files for this release.

The release also included schema and technical fixes, adjustments to markup for many licenses, updates and expansions to documentation, and various other changes.
More details can be found in the release notes at https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/releases/tag/v3.20.
Thank you as always to the participants in the SPDX Legal community and license request submitters who contributed to this release.
