    SPDX License List is a list of (common) open source
    licenses that can be referred to by a “short identifier”.
    It has several advantages compared to the common "license header texts"
    usually found in source files.
    Some of the advantages:
    * It is precise; there is no ambiguity due to variations in license header
    * It is language neutral
    * It is easy to machine process
    * It is concise
    * It is simple and can be used without much cost in interpreted
      environments like java Script, etc.
    * An SPDX license identifier is immutable.
    * It provides simple guidance for developers who want to make sure the
      license for their code is respected
