Explaining and Accessing the SPDX License List - Gary O'Neall, Source Auditor & Jilayne Lovejoy, ARM
The Software Products Data Exchange (SPDX) maintains the SPDX License List, a list of commonly found open source software licenses for the purposes of being able to easily and efficiently identify such licenses in an SPDX document. The SPDX License List has been referred to as the “gateway drug of SPDX adoption” due to its functionality that cuts far broader than just within SPDX documents. This presentation will provide an overview of the SPDX License List, recent changes with the release of version 2.0 of the SPDX specification, and how it can be used to describe license information for open source files. This talk will also describe various methods for users and tools to access the current and previous versions of the list, ranging from simply reading the license list on the website to programmatically accessing the license list information.
