License List v1.2 wiki page created
Jilayne Lovejoy <Jlovejoy@...>
I uploaded the v1.2 spreadsheet and accompanying guidelines in a word doc as
attachments to a new Wiki page here: http://www.spdx.org/wiki/license-list-v12
my previous email this morning, as I did make a couple minor updates to the
uploaded version (but did not rename).
are is the list particular things that need some form of resolution:
exactly are we handling all the GPL/LGPL exceptions?
do we want to handle LGPL/GPL “vXor later” versus LGPL/GPL vX?
versions – we don’t have Apache 1.1, EUPL v1.0, MPL v1.0, NPL
v1.0, other OSL versions, AFL, etc.
Apache 1.1 as that is often still seen, but what about others?
email Vol1, Issue 14 – list of licenses, does not match with this
one – add to current?
- Licenses with an
alternative name or an associated project in parenthesis after the name
– some of these need a determination and some may be superfluous,
perhaps? Can we come up with a “rule” for this?:
ISC License (Bind, DHCP Server)
Public License v1.02 (Plan9)
- BSD licenses –
currently include all naming variations “BSD 3-clause
‘New’ or ‘Revised’ License” à seems
like we should pick one naming protocol and stick with it, maybe putting
the others in parenthesis or omitting??
this is really an LGPL notice + special exception - should we have it as a
note: this is the zlib license, but OSI calls it the zlib/libpng license.
Yet there is a different license for libpng: see http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/src/libpng-LICENSE.txt
- Why is “with acknowledgments”
listed in “Recognized Exceptions” column?
