Soeren, welcome, and thanks for the incremental licenses -- Licenses that come up in day-to-day practice are high value for SPDX. Thanks, Tom

Subject: Hello world and additional licenses

Hello spdx mailing list

I guess I am the first new subscriber, since you went public?
My name is Soeren Rabenstein, I am in ASUSTeK's legal department since early 2009 and responsible for European legal compliance as well as implementation of a FOSS license compliance program.

Thank you for creating the specification. We are very interested in bringing forward the standard, since "Software-BOMs" form a key element of our compliance program (we actually switched to the term "BOC"="Bill of Code", to avoid confusion with actual, physical BOMs) and supply chain management turned out to be the biggest challenge over here.

As a first contribution, I compared the list of specified licenses in the spdx-draft with my own approval list. As a result I would like to propose the following licenses to be added to spdx. With the exception of the last item, these are all licenses I came across during my practice. I may add them myself through the wiki, but currently I cannot see a working wiki page on this.
I am also happy to dig our more licenses that are not yet listed.
