Re: a way to specify the license of the SPDX file?

That work is in process; the Legal Team is working on it. You may want to get on their distribution list. 
The rough plan is to add a field to the spec which is the license for the data in the file. There will be a default license, probably an standard open source license, but the author of the file will have the ability to specify a different one.

if I create a SPDX file, and I want to attach a license to it (for
example, that the file cannot be further distributed) how do I do it
_inside_ the own SPDX file?
