  • BSV is no longer open source as defined by the Open Source Definition | 2021-04-11
    Shortly after, they had the gall to ask for that garbage fire of a license to be included in a catalog of open source licenses. And then claimed to not understand how that request could possibly be denied...
  • How to use SPDX for licensing?
    My doubt is if there is some programmatic use of SPDX. If not why they have such a strict syntax as specified here. Also there are multiple extra tools on the github repo for parsing, comparing and even generating spdx files like this. Now if user is just mentioning the license identifiers why do we need all these? And what does it mean to compare licenses as it seems that they're using string comparison techniques to find closest match to license in their catalogue.
    Recently, I came to know about SPDX but I am not sure about how to use it. From the articles that I've read, it seems like SPDX mainly consists of all common licenses here and then we mention the license and some other data inside our project. Is it legible to replace actual License file with this SPDX config file or do we need to keep the license file in the project as well? So far it seems like the syntax for specifying license and other data in SPDX file is just for convenience and doesn't serve any actual purpose. For Ex- It would've been better if it could generate license files from it or even if it just validates the data. Maybe I'm missing something because there isn't much resource on the internet regarding this.

    At some point, Daniel Connolly applied for OpenBSV to be included in the SPDX license list, but was promptly rejected due its field of use restriction.
