#2799 F38 Change proposal: SPDX License Phase 1
Closed: Accepted 2 years ago by zbyszek. Opened 2 years ago by bcotton.

Transition from Fedora's short name of licenses to standardized SPDX license formula.

Owners, do not implement this work until the FESCo vote has explicitly ended.
The Fedora Program Manager will create a tracking bug in Bugzilla for this Change, which is your indication to proceed.
See the FESCo ticket policy and the Changes policy for more information.

I am in favor in general, but I'd like to see this resolved first: https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/devel@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/F54HTLA7FB2Y7QRK34Y3EMAAP6RBF4CQ/

So let me add a procedural -1 to avoid automatic approval before this is addressed.

I think we can live with ambiguity for licenses like MIT during the transition. At some point in the future we'll be able to say that we have only SPDX licenses, and the ambiguity will go away.

+1, thanks for the additions to the change proposal

Since the proposal was edited on 6 June, I'll wait until the beginning of next week to process this change. Removing the meeting tag as the -1 is now a +1.
