Would it be possible to add:

BSD 2-clause

to our table of valid licenses?

This is already accepted under the "BSD" moniker for Fedora license tags.

Oh, I see it now:

BSD License (two clause)    BSD   (...)   https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Licensing/BSD#2ClauseBSD

Aren't we using this plain "BSD" abbreviation too liberally?

If you look at SPDX you'll see that there are BSD licenses and then BSD licenses, some are ok for FSF, some for OSI, some for both, and some for none (which is scary) (ref.: https://spdx.org/licenses/ ).

We want to get closer to the SPDX maybe it is time to use the more specific abbreviations for these BSD licenses we have.

P.S.: Any interest in adding a SPDX abbrev column to our table?  I can try and help populating it.
