UNLICENSED or Unlicense?

(龙腾道) #1

What I Wanted to Do

To choose a standard name for “The Unlicense” license.

What Happened Instead

UNLICENSED at https://docs.npmjs.com/files/package.json.html

Unlicense (lower-case follows, and no end “d”) at https://spdx.org/licenses/

Reproduction Steps

Those are two completely different things:

  • The Unlicense is “a public domain dedication”
  • UNLICENSED isn’t a license, but an npm-defined keyword “if you do not wish to grant others the right to use a private or unpublished package under any terms”

Oh, that make sense, thank you!
