SPDX ID for GPL-2.0+ with addendum ?

Wolfgang Denk


I ran into a number of source files which include the standard
GPL-2.0+ license header, but augmented with the following addendum:

For the avoidance of doubt the "preferred form" of this code is one which
is in an open non patent encumbered format. Where cryptographic key signing
forms part of the process of creating an executable the information
including keys needed to generate an equivalently functional executable
are deemed to be part of the source code.

I think we will need a new License tag for this, right?

Do you have any suggestion for this?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
