Recommend Changing SPDX License Identifier for Eclipse Public License 1.0 to "Eclipse-1.0"

Tom Incorvia

Hello SPDX license list interested parties,


I would like to propose that we change the License Identifier for the Eclipse Public License 1.0 on the SPDX License List from “EPL-1.0” to “Eclipse-1.0”. 


I suggest this because “Eclipse” is how the license is commonly referred to. 


Secondarily, I have recently received 2 calls when documents referred to EPL-1.0, and the Identifier was simply not visually recognized by the user (yes, they could have clicked the link, but if Eclipse is the common usage, let’s go with it unless there is a cost).    


Any concerns?
