What should be used to denote the > eGPL license? (http://www.egpl.info) Wow, I had no idea. As I read it, a project is licensed under the eGPL with no exceptions, or with some set of exceptions. I would consider each set of exceptions to be a separate license; deciding one is ok doesn't mean another is. So, for a hypothetical project foo with eGPL and an exception for government use, I would suggest that we either: add egpl-license to pkgsrc add egpl-foo-license to pkgsrc saying "egpl-license, with exceptions ..." tag foo with egpl-foo-license or do the same, but do it as egpl-government-license and point multiple projects *with the same exception list* at that file.
