There was also some sort of weirdly ideological argument with the FSF
about what identifiers to use for the GPL and related licenses, which
resulted in SPDX using an "-only" and "-or-later" syntax in the identifier
at the insistence of the FSF rather than a separate generic syntax the way
that we do.

https://spdx.org/licenses/ is the current license list and assigned short
