Re: Spdx Digest, Vol 1, Issue 16


1) I noticed the license list included some of the GPL
exceptions such
as Autoconf and Bison.  My understanding is that the
text for these
exceptions would be the exception itself (not the full
license) and so
there would need to be a way to pair the exception with the
proper GPL
version in such a way that is distinct from dual and
licensing situations.  Otherwise, we would need to
list each GPL version
with each exception as separate and whole licenses.
Text for each exception, should include exception and original licenses.
Provided that we still go with the license text repository, what about something like a "diff"-standard for exceptions and variations of the standard licenses? (i.e. a standardized syntax describing lines to add to / delete from the original license text)
