The format provides reliable information about licenses (based on human analysis) and the distinction between the licences who are declared by the package creator and those which are found in files.
The conversion from the SPDX file format to an object model was easily made.
The SPDX file format gives declarative fine scale information about the licenses and the origin of each file in the package.
For us the standard license information is very important because is much more precise and reliable than a simple declaration of the licence's name with no standard formatting.
When we collect information about open source projects, it would be easier to parse information if the licence information were completely machine readable. SPDX format provides this feature.
If any file's licence cannot be defined ("none") it would be better if the format allowed to use "none" as one of concluded licenses.
It's necessary to impose every concluded license to be the concluded license of at least one file, otherwise some licenses could be considered as concluded licenses of the package but we cannot know from which file (component) they come from.
