i have absolutely no idea what to think of this, and am open to
suggestions. does anyone have a working scenario to simply
the usage of spdx.bbclass?
Would you mind opening a Yocto defect.
That code hasn't been touched in a while and needs some serious
attention. The underlying tools and processes have changed so much
it may be a case of starting again and we should perhaps consider
removing that class...
as one more followup to this, first, i was asked by a colleague
about the possibility of generating an "SPDX notice file," and as i
don't know what the format of one of those things is, it's hard for me
to know how to answer. it seems clear at this point that spdx.bbclass
is not going to cut it, as richard points out.

more to the point, has anyone had to do something that seems to
resemble what i was asked about? i'm open to suggestions as to what
*is* supported so i can try it out and hand it over and at least say,
"is this close to what you're looking for?"

thanks for any pointers.
