Proposed (!!! I feel sorry for putting it into your issue tracker thought it would be actually helping to bring transparency) is a meta issue that shows what FOSSology covers in terms of license analysis use cases and which of the issues in this issue tracker are connected with this.

Please note also that there is a meta issue on the FOSSology side, summarising captured shortcomings of the FOSSology w.r..t the SPDX spc:


FOSSology use cases

  • Obligations, risks, restrictions as part of the SPDX #111
  • ECC information #35
  • IPR limitations (trademarks?) could be also covered by risks or here #35
  • identified files that do not get distributed #92
  • import SPDX files issue for large OSS components or shipped products #96
  • acknowledgement on file level #28

Admitted that #92 is maybe covered by the relations construct, although I am not convinced it represents a solution that as intended
