format requirements inconsistency


Armijn Hemel <armijn@...>
 

hi all,

I read the specs and saw:

1.6. Format Requirements:
1.6.1. Must be in a human readable form.
1.6.2. Must be in a syntax that a software tool can read and
write.

In my experience these two are not mutually exclusive, but they don't go
well together without making sacrifices to either one, or both.

Please drop one, preferably the human readable form, since that one can
be derived from the machine readable format with some templating engine
or stylesheets. Dropping it also makes automated checking and comparing
of SPDX files a lot easier.

Also, 1.5.2 has a tpyo ('and' should be 'an')
