There is a FAQ page on the site or do you mean for the new pages you are 
working on? The existing one could always use an overhaul.

By the way, great job.

Thanks Sam! Good point on the copyright notice. I'll add something to clarify 
that those should remain in place.
I also think that this site could benefit from an FAQs page to go into more 
detail on some items. If people have suggestions for questions / answers, feel 
free to send them my way and I'll add an FAQ section.

Hi Steve,

Nice page!

It may be worth noting (perhaps in the ‘How’ section) that the SPDX ID should 
only replace license text, and that copyright notices should remain (otherwise 
there is a danger of overzealous replacement of both license text + copyright).

Subject: [spdx-tech] SPDX short-form IDs site

Hello all,
I've been working on a few pages on the SPDX website on why and how to use SPDX 
short-form IDs. This is intended to be developer-focused, usable by someone who 
isn't otherwise familiar with SPDX, to get them to start putting SPDX 
identifiers in their source code.
The first cut at this is now available at There are a few 
"read more..." pages linked from that URL. These pages are visible but not yet 
linked from the rest of the site.

I'd welcome feedback and edits, if you have any, before linking this into the 
main site. In particular it would be great to know if it looks okay on other 
browsers, since this is the first time I've worked with Drupal and I may have 
bent a few things...
