Deal with the case, where

Deal with the case, where the package is not one single file, but a collection of files in a directory. The openSUSE build Service is such a beast. How to take the SHA1 sum in that case, what is the machineName then?

Make http://www.spdx.org/licenses/ consitent with the license list in the draft PDF.'+' is used in the URLs in the pdf verbatim. This needs to be %2B, or will be interpreted as whitespace. /licenses/index.html contains 'LGPL-3.0%20with-exceptions' which uses whitespace. In HTML these two would be the same, but one is 'or later' while the other means 'only'.

Please add LGPL-2.1 instead of LGPL-2.0

Make the license list consitent within itself. 'GNU General Public License version 1.0 only' versus 'GNU General Public License version 2.0', either all with 'only' or none. 'BSD 3-clause "New" or "Revised" License' uses ", whereas 'GNU Library or “Lesser” General Public License version 2.0' use bipolar UTF-8 quotes. -- JNW on Wed, 2010-09-22 17:29
