SPDX License List - license inclusion guidelines

J Lovejoy

Hi all,

As has been mentioned on recent general calls, the legal team has been discussing a revision of the license inclusion guidelines off and on over the past year. We have a draft iteration that incorporates many of the discussed changes in the Github repo here: https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/blob/master/DOCS/license-inclusion-principles.md The existing guidelines are here: https://spdx.org/spdx-license-list/license-list-overview

We will be discussing this on tomorrow’s legal call and hoping to finalize the revision of the inclusion guidelines in the next few weeks. If you are interested in this topic, I’d encourage you to join the call tomorrow or otherwise comment in Github or on the mailing list.
