RE: Model suggestions for the IP / licensing section

Hi Steve,


I just realized I didn’t answer your second question:



Are SPDX license expressions something that can be validated with XML schema and/or JSON schema?


[G.O.] no, as far as I can tell – this is the disadvantage of this approach.  To fully validate the _expression_, you would need to include the full rather complex model.  We have some SPDX tools that have implementations of license _expression_ validation in Java, Python, Golang.  _javascript_/Node is on its way.


If anyone is interested in these tools implementation let me know and I’ll give you more info.
