SPDX License List 3.0 is now live!

J Lovejoy
 

Hi all,

Thanks to a lot of hard work by various members of the SPDX legal team, we have now (finally!) gone live with version 3.0 of the SPDX License List - including use of the new XML format for the master files and changes to the GNU license identifiers due to collaboration with the FSF. As always, you can see the new version at the usual place: https://spdx.org/licenses/

There is still some odds and ends to tidy up, and we’ll have a blog post with a more thorough description of the changes after the 1st of the year.  In the meantime, I hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend and New Year’s festivities (in whatever form you choose)!

Thanks again to the massive effort by the SPDX legal team and tech team members who have tirelessly made this happen!

Cheers,

Jilayne

AMAZING!

And, of course, Jilayne deserves kudos beyond measure.

Aww man, you've got to be kidding? You got rid of the "+" signifier
and now we have to write out words?!

I really don't like this change. It makes things more verbose for no benefit.

This issue has seen a a lot of discussion over the past year (going
back at least as far as May [1]). I'm also not wild about the change
(although there are *some* benefits), but discussing it should
probably be an issue for the spdx-legal@ list only (no need to drag in
spdx@ or spdx-biz@, and the spdx-tech@ folks are probably all
listening on spdx-legal@ anyway). I propose we continue this
discussion on spdx-legal@ only, and have only included the other
spdx-*@ in my message in case folks there are wondering where the
conversation went ;).

Cheers,
Trevor
