Re: SPDX X-Ray

Nuno Brito

Hi Sameer,

I'm happy to see a new release, the improvements are good.

I like the LQI acronym/concept as I've also been using a similar graphical license indicator as seen on

Perhaps you wouldn't mind if I also adopt the same acronym for this kind of metric?

Some feedback:
- The graphs look very big on a desktop browser, perhaps the page was designed for tablet browsing?
- On the "Flags" tab one sees Documentation files including .png images. Perhaps the correct flag would be "Images"?

If there is a bug tracker somewhere, perhaps I can post these items there.

btw. I find the "Meta Information Files" tab very useful as a quick reference to know where to look inside the package.

Very useful tool, thanks for sharing.

With kind regards,
Nuno Brito
