"X.org Preferred License"


Mark Atwood
 

The "X.org Preferred License" documented at [
https://www.x.org/archive/current/doc/xorg-docs/License.html ] is the MIT
license with the additional text in the middle "(including the next
paragraph)".

Our SPDX license matching tool is not locking onto it with 100%, but instead
is showing it nearest edit distance to MIT. I've not yet dug in deeper,
but,

Is the X.org variant in the SPDX database?
If not should we add it as an new license, or as matching rule variant to
MIT?

If its not in the database, I will start the legwork and paperwork to add
it.
