Sorry if this seems super-pedantic but I am pretty sure the license
text in the IETF Trust Legal Provisions does not actually match SPDX
`BSD-3-Clause` because of one additional word in clause 3 ("specific"
before "contributors"), so IMO you should get SPDX to modify its
definition of `BSD-3-Clause` prior to applying this patch (or get IETF
to change its version of the license, but I imagine that would be more
difficult). This issue of a multitude of nonsubstantively different,
non-matching versions of clause 3 is a common issue that has been
coming up in the Fedora project's adoption of SPDX identifiers for
license metadata.
