Discussion on Appendix V: Using SPDX short identifiers in Source Files

  • Alexios pointed out that there are several source files that have an SPDX identifier and continues with additional license text
    • This causes issues for tools that expect the SPDX identifier to be the sole expression of a license for that file
  • Discussion on how to add/represent/resolve additional text
  • Discussion on substantial modifications made to files which have additional licenses
  • REUSE has recommendations that seem to resolve this issue
  • Current text in Appendix V does not reflect these recommendations
  • Alexios to create a PR as a proposal
  • Steve will review the PR and comment
