Hi Nuno,

Thank you for your feedback. I will accommodate your feedback in the next release.

Feel free to adopt the LQI concept. We would like it to be adopted by the community.

If you have more feedback, you can directly contact me or at spdx@...

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
