# license:

# license: MITL

A descriptive/non-technical PMD field.

  • It just lists a SPDX moniker

  • or a full license name.

  • Must not be used as file reference.

Which is meant to avoid having to plaster license blobs into every code file.

# copyright:

For proprietary code, it's advisable to use a custom field like # copyright: instead.

# license: UNLICENSED
# copyright: (c) 2019 ACME Corp

Whereas the author name should go into # author: still.
