Is there a machine-readable list of open licences and urls?


#1

Where can I find a machine-readable list of conformant licences and associated urls?


#2

Found it! http://licenses.opendefinition.org

Handy resource :smiley: thanks


#3

However, licenses.opendefinition.org isn’t up to date. The plan is to merge it with the main repo but I haven’t done anything towards that, see https://github.com/okfn/opendefinition/issues/7


#4

Thanks. I was looking for a resource to use in a drop down list asking the user to specify which open license they are applying. Any suggestions?

What’s involved in fixing issue #7? Perhaps I can help if it’s not too complex.


#5

Given that the Frictionless Data specification requires an open licence, I think this issue is important to resolve. I don’t think I have the rights to address Issue #7 as proposed but can I address it within the current http://licenses.opendefinition.org implementation?

Hi @Stephen

The Frictionless Data specifications do not require an open license.


#7

I believe the specification says otherwise, unless I’m interpreting it incorrectly:

http://specs.frictionlessdata.io/data-package/#licenses

P.S. Broken link reported in #454


#8

Thanks. This is a regression in the latest changes. Will fix.


#9

I’m going to have to look at it again in depth to see if it can be broken apart and there are easy parts. I assigned the issue to myself as a reminder. Feel free to bug me about it if I don’t follow up in the next couple weeks.

Hi @mlinksva and @Stephen it would be awesome to fix #7 and i can volunteer to help.

Also maybe @todrobbins might be up for helping too :slight_smile:

@mlinksva
I’m feeling free to bug you. I’ll need this for a project I’m starting.
