x/pkgsite: GPL3 considered a "permissive license" #43758
I have several packages licensed under GPLv3, which is correctly detected by pkg.go.dev. However I noticed today that in the "details" bar on the right one of the features described is "permissive license". Normally that's a term used for non-copyleft licenses like ISC. An example page where this is the case would be this: https://pkg.go.dev/rescribe.xyz/preproc
In https://pkg.go.dev/about#best-practices-h2 it states that "For more information on how pkg.go.dev determines if a license is permissive, see our license policy", linking to https://pkg.go.dev/license-policy, but that only seems to detail how licenses are detected (which is done correctly in this case), not how "permissive license" is determined.
I think copyleft licensed projects should not be tagged with "permissive license", and ideally tagged "copyleft license" instead, in the details box.
