Re: SPDX License List v2.4 released

Hi Sam,


Yes - we deliberately produce both files.


Originally, the site was created with HTML files without the .html extension.

There were problems in rendering pages.  After many attempts at trying to configure the webserver to properly encode/handle the errors, we decided to move to generating pages with the .html suffixes.


Since there were some applications accessing the files without extensions programmatically, we decided to generate both files for backwards compatibility reasons - they are exact duplicates. 


It is recommended to use the .html rather than the files with no extensions.


It looks like the rendering error is due to the &copy in the template which was recently added.


I'm not sure why this is tripping on this, but if you run the W3C validator on the file, it seems to complain about the encoding configuration of the webserver. 


I'll re-generate the files and change the &copy to (c) which should fix the problem.  I'll include this with the fix for the NLOD-1.0 license.


I should have the files uploaded within the next day or so.

I see an error reported at the top of this page:


The error is:


error on line 213 at column 22: Entity 'copy' not defined


I obtained this URL by searching for “spdx perl artistic license 2.0” in google.


Interestingly there is no error here:


Do we deliberately provide two URLs for each license?

Thanks for catching this Alexios - you are right as to where the error is coming from… 


I’ll work with Gary to fix this.

I assume because the reference (at least in the Excel file) is to “NLOD-1..txt” instead of “NLOD-1.0.txt”.

Hi All,


Version 2.4 of the SPDX License List is now available in the usual places.  We added 9 new licenses for this release, including some international licenses and newly-approved by the OSI.


You will also notice a new look to the license list pages - this is part of the new website revamp.  You will see the new look on the rest of the pages soon!
