Define SPDX License identifier exception for KDE e.V. Exception
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Much framework code uses the LGPL-2.1 or LGPL-3 license together with the KDE e.V. exception, which allows the e.V. membership to define a possible successor of LGPL-3 (in case it ever will be published, see KDE Licensing Policy). SPDX provides a registry of exceptions for the respective licenses.
We have to define the identifier and get it listed on SPDX.

cordlandwehr renamed this task from Define SPDX License identifier exceptoin for KDE e.V. Exception to Define SPDX License identifier exception for KDE e.V. Exception.

FYI: Ticket created on SPDX.org for LGPL-2.1 or later or approved by the membership of the KDE e.V.: https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/issues/928

FYI: I am working on a licensing policy update draft (early draft, input welcome!) that tries to split the KDE licensing requirements from the technical act and moreover introduces REUSE compatible license statements as the preferred way of stating licensing information: https://community.kde.org/Policies/Licensing_Policy/Draft_SPDX

License Policy was updated to allow and prefer SPDX identifiers: https://community.kde.org/index.php?title=Policies/Licensing_Policy
