I completely agree. I think anyone that has actual tried to analyze a package for copyright/license info knows that a lot of judgment calls are required.

In this case, several have been made:

1. Files without a license share the license of the project
2. If a file A specifies that its license is in B, then license(A) == license(B)
I would say that as license(A) = license-specified-by(B). For example, the text of GPL v3, <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html>, is licensed under terms quite different from GPL. So if license(A) -> B where B is a file containing just the text of the GPL then license(A) = GPL but license(B) = "Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed."

3. Even thought there is no perfect textual comparison of the license
(aside from whitespace) the licenses have been considered to be
equivalent.
This is the only sane thing to do. Unfortunately, there are situations in which reasonable people could disagree about whether two license texts are really the same license or not.

These are very good reasons why standardizing text of licenses by
inclusion seems to me like a bad idea.
Here i disagree. I think standardizing some license texts is a Good Thing. No one will be force to reference those standard licenses. If you find a license that you believe is materially different from the all the texts in the public repo that license can be included in the spdx file as a non-standard license. Having a set of licenses with standardized names allows much more efficient communication and greater interoperability.

The standard should be updated to allow the license text to be included in all situations. Even for standard licenses. That way an spdx producer could include the variations found, even if the producer considers them materially the same.

First, one question:

1. Some files do not contain a license, yet they are marked as one:
We assume any that file that does not contain explicit license info and does
not match any of the open source in our database is licensed under the
declared license of the project. In this case the Zlib license.

2. Some files refer to zlib.h as the file with a license. Now, if the
SHA1 of the file does not change, I would presume (as a user) that I
don't need to scan it again, which is good. But what if zlib.h
changes? Would it be useful in the SPDX to
use a "reference" field to denote such a thing?
I think this is outside the scope of the spdx proper. Many of the decisions
about what licenses govern a file will be made on criteria other than an
explicit license declaration, direct or indirect. For example, some part of
a file might be matched against a database of open source and that open
source file might have a license associated with it.

In the short term this could be handled as comment on the file object. It
might be an interesting follow on project to create an extension to allow
expressing the decision criteria for why a particular license was chosen.

3. Is it the same to include a license than to refer to a license?
We treat those the same. This is a policy issue to be worked out between
the producer and the consumers of the spdx file. I think the spec should
avoid specify the copyright/license analysis process. Spdx should just
provide a way to express the results of such an analysis.


4. In some files the zlib iicense varies slightly:


This software is provided 'as-is', without any express or implied
warranty. In no event will the author be held liable for any damages
arising from the use of this software.

License templates

Peter Williams <peter.williams@...>
 

In <https://fossbazaar.org/pipermail/spdx/2010-September/000116.html> dmg brought up and interesting question regarding how similar two license texts need to be before they can be considered the same license.  This got me thinking about the proposed license templates.

I am increasing uncomfortable with the idea of spdx specify a mechanism intended to support recognition of licenses.  That very idea seems fraught with peril, both technically and legally. 

What constitutes similar enough to treat as a single license is a policy decision.  Risk averse organizations with a high profile might choose a relatively high bar for sameness, while less risk averse organizations will probably prefer a lower bar.  I think setting these policies should be left to the producers and consumers of spdx files.  These parties are the only ones with enough information to do it effectively.

There are a few situations where a light weight template syntax in the license text field itself would be useful.  Such a syntax would allow a way to demarcate really obvious and uncontentious replaceable parts of the license.  Square brackets around a description of the replaceable element would probably sufficient.  For example, the 3 clause bsd license text would look like this
Copyright (c) [YEAR], [OWNER]

This would allow spdx to provide canonical forms of licenses without trying to specify policy issues.

guidelines for License Notes field

Jilayne Lovejoy <Jlovejoy@...>
 

As per the discussion during Friday's License call, I typed up a
guideline/description of what should/should not be included in the
License Notes field on the License List:


License Notes field guidelines
- For the purpose of describing what kinds of information
should or can be included in this field and what kinds of information
should not be included here with examples of both.

The information included in the License Notes field should consist of
factual information only. Opinions or interpretations of the license
should not be included here. Factual information may include such
information as the dates of a revision or new version if that
information is not already included in the license itself or a note
stating that the license has been deprecated by the author. For
example, the BSD license might have a Note stating that the original
advertising clause was deleted as of July 22, 1999. (see "Historical
Note" here for full example:
http://opensource.org/licenses/bsd-license.php) This field may also be
used to communicate updates to the license due to typographical errors
or other data entry alterations (that are not changes to the license by
the license's author).

Information that in any way interprets the license or draws conclusions
as to what the license requires is not appropriate. For example, links
to interpretations of the license, even if written by the license's
author, should not be included here. Much external information exists
on license interpretation and we do not want to favor one over the
other. Likewise, statements that the license is a dedication to the
public domain should not be included. This is a determination for the
recipient of the license to make, not the SPDX creator.

This is good. It can start some discussion on the standard.

First, one question:

I scanned the file for zlib and I found some issues with it, but I
think are worth discussing:

1. Some files do not contain a license, yet they are marked as one:

*/


------------
2. Some files refer to zlib.h as the file with a license. Now, if the
SHA1 of the file does not change, I would presume (as a user) that I
don't need to scan it again, which is good. But what if zlib.h

Now that you have appeared in the NY Times with a Boston Red Sox hat http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/26/business/26ping.html?src=busln, I feel I must respond quickly.

There are a number of places in SPDX.org that provide links to the mail list sign up, for example:

Click on the mail list sign up link. Then click on the first link that appears on the mail list page https://fossbazaar.org/mailman/listinfo/spdx

Mailing list archive

Peter Williams <peter.williams@...>
 

Is the spdx mailing list archived anywhere? I was looking to read up on the past debate around a particular part of the spec and I was unable to locate an archive of the mailing list.

It is crucial that the forum in which so many of the decisions regarding SPDX are made be archived and made available on the web. The lack of an archive on the web make our work quite opaque to anyone who is not currently subscribed. It also hides this effort from people who might be interested because none of it shows up in search engines.

It is possible to turn on an archiving feature in our list server?

sandbox.  (Perhaps i do not permission to do that? )   Would someone
with more knowledge of (or permissions with) the wiki do that for me?

Comments and feedback are welcome.

Some SPDX 1.0 beta examples

Peter Williams <peter.williams@...>
 

Hi all,

I have posted some examples, along with some notes about them at <http://spdx.org/wiki/openlogic-spdx-10-beta-examples>. The examples are intended to conform to the 1.0 beta version of the spec except that we used sha-256 checksums -- rather than sha-1 -- to identify the files.

I was not able to figure out how to add that page to the examples sandbox. (Perhaps i do not permission to do that? ) Would someone with more knowledge of (or permissions with) the wiki do that for me?

Comments and feedback are welcome.

All:
this is most likely a known problem, but the draft web page for the spec
at http://www.spdx.org/wiki/spdx/specification seems to be quite hard to
read (many empty lines), the paragraph numbers are almost all "1", and
the page is munged (the bottom is not displayed) on Firefox.
