The overall license for the application, or in certain cases, for the
source code only. Values should correspond to short identifiers of the
[SPDX](https://spdx.org/licenses/) license list. In some cases an
older, non-standard naming scheme is still used.
The overall license for the application in terms of the binary that
the user can install. Values should correspond to short identifiers of
the [SPDX](https://spdx.org/licenses/) license list. There can only be
one license listed here. If there are multiple licenses that apply to
the source code, then this field should contain the least restrictive
license that the whole app can be used under. When multiple licenses
are combined, that usually means the most restrictive wins.
This field cannot represent the complexity of licenses that apply to
parts of the app, or apps that have the entire thing released under
more than one license.
