Yeah, although that page is aiming at debian/copyright format, not SPDX.

As an example, it does not cover (and I think it would be confusing to
add to it, at least as currently structured) how licensecheck also
supports producing SPDX shortnames e.g. like this (which generates a
slightly **broken** debian/copyright file sude to MIT/Expat difference,
so beware):

  licensecheck --check '.*' --recursive --deb-machine --lines 0 --shortname-scheme spdx -- *
