There is still an issue here.

The SPDX id for GFDL requires the license text to be in LICENSES/....

But the plain GFDL-1.1-or-later lacks the invariant/front/back parts which
are an exception to the license and require an exception ID along with the
corresponding file in LICENSES/..... again.

So no, this won't cut it. Please stay with free form license information
until this is resolved.

Kate, can you have a look into that please on the SPDX side?

Thanks,

tglx
