copying: SPDX short-form identifiers

I’ve got various things that have licenses, and I like knowing how things are licensed, so it is useful for me to mark the things.

I’m gonna start using the SPDX short-form identifiers.

https://spdx.org/ids

Quick aside, here is all the license data (including JSON) in a git mirror: mirror/license-list-data - license-list-data - allthe.codes

I don’t like SPDX for most of it’s purpose. Every time I read the website I can’t help but think this is a way for companies to sue people. So I don’t think it should be used as a shortcode link to a file as a header in each source file. I just think they compiled a sane list of short IDs to use, and I’m gonna.

The whole list is longer than I thought (381!) so I’ll leave it here, at the end. The meta data field copying is an array, will have one or more of the following identifiers. :slight_smile:
