Re: New License Request

J Lovejoy

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the request.  Dennis and Tom are right - according to your License Matching Guidelines (located here:, this would be a BSD-3-Clause.  We had actually reviewed this as part of our on-going review of the Fedora list and noted as such in the tracking spreadsheet for the Fedora list

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

I believe that BSD-3-Clause is your best option.  The Legal working group will make a final decision the next time we review new license requests.

I have been out of the loop for a while, but I thought that we were not going to have separate licenses for exact matches to existing licenses such as BSD-3-Clause.

I don't follow SPDX closely enough to know such things. If that's the case, do we simply use the "BSD-3-Clause" identifier for the EDL?
