You mean basically following what i wrote in
I do see one advantage of that machine-readable format: You can easily
parse it out to get the various license tags for further processing. If
that is something people really want to use one could think of a way to
include that into the above too.
Still, now with my ftpmaster hat, the format doesn't make a difference
for us. Whatever people prefer, as long as all the information is
provided and it is a text file readable with less. :)
