I was wondering if anyone knew the answer to this. What license is
license text of the license under?

i.e. is the text of the GPLv3 license under GPLv3 or ... ?

We need to work out what the LICENSE of our ${PN}-lic packages are
this is far from clear...


It varies and can sometimes be a little counter-intuitive.

E.g. at the start of the GPLv3 text:

Copyright © 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of
this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

For most licenses it's not spelled out quite so clearly though.
I wonder what the SPDX identifier is for that!
