The License string is valid as both the old-style Fedora license and a SPDX
_expression_, and the tooling did not match anything in the changelog that would
indicate the license was converted to SPDX.

Typical example is


this is valid string in old system. And also in the SPDX format. But the old MIT represented whole family. It can be actually anything from

$ license-fedora2spdx 'MIT'
Warning: more options on how to interpret MIT. Possible options: ['mpich2', 'libtiff', 'Xfig', 'UnixCrypt', 'SMLNJ', 'SGI-B-2.0', 'NTP', 'MIT', 'MIT-open-group', 'MIT-feh', 'MIT-enna', 'MIT-Modern-Variant', 'MIT-F
estival', 'MIT-CMU', 'ICU', 'HPND', 'HPND-sell-variant', 'HP-1986', 'Boehm-GC', 'BSL-1.0', 'Adobe-Glyph']
{{pick MIT choice}}

It can be converted to MIT, but also to ICU or HPND... and without any indication in the changelog there is no way to know if you check it or not.

This is probably a good explanation to add to our Updating Existing Packages documentation page. I've added an issue as a reminder. Need to probably do a documentation update soon...
