Re: Some SPDX 1.0 beta examples
In my opinion, the problem with allowing "user judgement" in included
license variability can lead to disagreements of what a license really
is, or even worse, misunderstanding of what the license of a file is.
Say hypothetically, you read a license and for you it is zlib, and for
me it is not, and I prefer to refer to it as a zlib-variant, because
for me the differences are strong enough to worry.
I would prefer that there was a single place at the beginning of the
SPDX file where such two variants of the license are located, and then
I can look at it and decide if it is equal or not. Rather than
trusting your judgement.
Perhaps I am just beating a dead horse, and nobody really cares about
such differences (think MIT/X11 and BSD-variants not this zlib
