Re: on the variability of BSD and MIT licenses
Thanks to you and Trevor for contributing.
I agree with Guillaume. This is great discussion for the Legal Team.
Let's remove the general list from the thread. (also, please note that the fossbazaar list you originally used is out of date)

Yes indeed, it looks to be really great regarding SPDX relevance to adress and describe large scale situation.
I guess you will push some of your recommendation in the Tech/Legal WG to upgrade

Hi everybody, This term I taught a course on Intellectual Property and Software Development. the students were expected to conduct some research as part of the evaluation. One of them, Trevor Maryka (who I think is also subscribed to this list) took on the problem of trying to determine how 'variable' are the BSD and the MITs and what this means for their standardization under SPDX. he makes a set of recommendations to SPDX (see section 5). I am attaching his paper. It is, in my opinion, very good news for SPDX.
