There have been several talks about the need for a package level License Coverage Grade. This project will come up with an initial set of heuristics based on MIME types for what file types should have automatically detectable license identifiers. Then create a command line tool that will accept and parse an SPDX document and a pointer to sources that created it, and come up with license coverage "grade" for the package.
