DebConf20: Simplifying Copyright Using SPDX IDs

I’ve been contributing for Debian since late 2019, I submitted a talk to the DebConf20. One of the topics that annoyed me the most at that time was how tedious it was to write and read larger d/copright files.

So I’ve submitted a talk about the SPDX standard, hoping to start a discussion to get rid of the license texts inside the file. IMHO not a very good talk, but also not bad one either for my first public talk.

tl;dw: there never was a noteworthy discussion, but thanks to some hints on IRC I’ve discovered REUSE from the FSFE. It basically already implements what I had in mind, and I will surely write up a blog post about it at some point.
