> Current model for license is something, yet it is not machine-friendly.
> Developers tend to put random data into {{<license><name>...</name><url>...</url>}},
and it is hard to analyze in automatic way.
> What if we could use SPDX license identifiers/expressions for license information?
> Note: currently POM allows to list multiple <license> tags, and it is not clear
how they should be treated (and? or?). So a machine-readable field should probably allow for
AND/OR license expressions.
> So it would be nice if there was a way to declare a machine-readable license tag.
> I'm not affiliated with SPDX, however OSGi use those ids: https://osgi.org/specification/osgi.core/7.0.0/framework.module.html#framework.module-bundle-license
