    Clarified Identifiers for GNU Licenses

    In a collaborative effort between the Free Software Foundation (FSF) and the SPDX working group to help facilitate clarity and better license identification practices, we have updated the short identifiers for the GNU family of licenses to support more precise and consistent usage.
    As such, the next release of the SPDX License List v3.0 will reflect the changes to the GNU family of licenses following this pattern:


    Why 3.0 and not 2.7?

    A major version numbering change was used with this release to act as a clear signal to users of the license list, that this release wasn’t a business as usual. Given the significance of the changes on how licenses are represented internally, new tooling is now possible to improve the fidelity of license recognition. In addition, the short form identifier naming changes to address the FSF concerns with how the GPL licenses are represented and deprecation of the prior GNU license identifiers will impact some projects.
