[Linux-kernel-mentees] SPDX license idenitifers in documentation files

Do the documentation files require a license identifier as well?
The documentation says that license identifiers are required for
all source files. Does this include files under Documentation/ or
can they be exempted?

Currently most of the files under Documentation/ do not have a license
identifier but checkpatch seems to complain about them.
Can we exclude the check for .rst files?

Thank you,
