Firefox diagnostics are misleading here.
We have https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=655661 for this.

The SPDX pages are served with mime-type application/xml, but entities are
used that are illegal in XML. We should either promote to application/html
or get all entities fixed.
Do we have anybody at SPDX, who would want to look into this?

thanks,

Hi Juergen,

Thanks for pointing out the errors. I believe this is a known encoding
error which should be fixed when we next update the licenses. This will be
fixed on the next update. We don't have a specific date for the next update
but it should be less than a week from now.

Gary

I am not sure who manages this page, but
http://spdx.org/licenses/ISC and
some
others cannot be displayed on my firefox as they give a xml parsing
error.

Confirming this problem for Firefox 4.0.1 (Win32)

Cheers

I've put the update in place now. However, the issues pointed out by
Juergen and Joerg are different to the known issue. I've fixed the
issues up manually now and verified that all licenses parse properly.
I'll work with Gary offline to make sure his tools get updated.

Thank you!

BTW: Could you add a OSI tag to http://spdx.org/licenses/CPL-1.0?

This license is superceeded but it is used for the korn shell and other AT&T
software and for this reason, it is important to see that it is OSI approved.

For the overview table http://spdx.org/licenses/ it would also be nice to have
a one character marker column that flags wether a license is OSI approved or
not.

Jilayne, are you the right person to take care of this?

Hi Martin,

it will also help to have a simple tar file with all the licenses,
each in its own file, and without the HTML tagging.
Basically, the actual text of the license.

I added 2 bugs in bugzilla:

-          Bug 811 -Produce an archive of license texts for SPDX licenses

-          Bug 812 -Add a column to the index of licenses to indicate if a license is OSI approved

 

I assigned the latter bug to myself.  I’ll take a look at this after Beta.

I will make sure the appropriate change is included in the next version of
the license list spreadsheet, which should be relatively soon!

Yes, I have added this to my list of updates for the next license list
spreadsheet version.

This also makes me wonder if there are other "older" licenses that were OSI
certified and I may have missed, so I'll check the list of such licenses on
the OSI website against our list to be consistent.
