Hi folks,

I was thinking about License tag in RPM and we are using GPLv2, ASL 2.0 and
others as specified in Fedora wiki page with guidelines.

It is confusing: Why GPLv2 (with 'v' inside) and ASL 2.0 (without 'v'

Why we are not going to use names as defined in SPDX[0]? We are using SPDX
in AppStream-GLib for checking validity of license name in appstream

What do you think about my idea? Should I prepare patches?
