What is the URL of the page with the issue?

https://pkg.go.dev/gonum.org/v1/gonum@v0.9.1-0.20210927225948-aad206551871/graph/formats/rdf

What is your user agent?

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:93.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/93.0

What did you do?

Navigate to the url above.

What did you expect to see?

Documentation.

What did you see instead?

License warning.

I imagine that this is due to the LICENSE.md file in that directory which is not intended for machine interpretation and does not cover any text that would be rendered by pkg.go.dev.

Because of the exhaustive license name matching[1] it is unclear how to name this file so that it 1. is understandable to a human and 2. not incorrectly read by licensecheck.
