Two weeks ago we had:
> * 23055 spec files in Fedora
> * 29519license tags in all spec files
> * 17864 tags have not been converted to SPDX yet
> * 6691tags can be trivially converted using `license-fedora2spdx`
> * Progress: 39.48% ░░░███████ 100%
Today we have:
* 23090 spec files in Fedora
* 29509license tags in all spec files
* 17680 tags have not been converted to SPDX yet
* 6607tags can be trivially converted using `license-fedora2spdx`
* Progress: 40.09% ░░░░██████ 100%
1467 out of 3764 packages are not converted yet
The list of packages needed to be converted is again here:
List by package maintainers is here
List of packages from ELN subset that needs to be converted:
New version of fedora-license-data has been released. With 6 new licenses.
Legal docs and especially
was updated too.
I updated the progress the spreadsheet with Burndown chart:
New projection when we will be finished is 2024-11-18 (we are slowing down a lot!). Pure linear approximation.
If your package does not have neither git-log entry nor spec-changelog entry mentioning SPDX and you know your license
tag matches SPDX formula, you can put your package on ignore list
Either pull-request or direct email to me is fine.
Tip of the day: Do you have license that does not have SPDX id? Here is shortened version how to get one:
* Submit issue against https://gitlab.com/fedora/legal/fedora-license-data when accepted the issue gets
"licese::allowed" and "SPDX::submit issue" labels
* Then somebody has to file issue against https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/ When **you** do that, it speeds up
the process. Otherwise it can take one or three weeks untill **we* do that.
* When SPDX accepts the license and emits the id for the license then the issue in fedora-license-data get label "TOML
file::needed". And somebody has to craft TOML file and open MR. This can be you, if you want to make things faster.
And then you can finally use the new id in your SPEC file.
Why SPDX Dollar edition? Because on today's date (I am writing this on the eve of posting), in year 1785 accepted that
money unit of USA should be one dollar. The name comes from my homeland, Czechia. In 16th century we had here currency
thaler (in Czech tolar) that found it way to many languages and through Dutch and Spanish coined the word "dollar".
