      • Concerned about alignment between different SPDX files from different people

      • Getting SPDX from copyright holder is great per Mark Gisi.  However, thinks, that it may be hard because of amount of work.
    • How
      do we handle jars that may have other stuff inside -- thought was 

      handling as conjunctive licenses.  Could also handle as a separate SPDX

  • Web Site Re-design
    • Discussed with Steve and Martin re current technical setup for SPDX website.
    • It's one website with FOSSbazaar - shared users, db, etc- just different content
    • Uses Drupal 6
    • Martin will set up a sandbox for SPDX so they can experiment and determine what we want and what technology will work.
    • Currently
      Martin is taking care of SPDX and FossBazaar -- can do small changes.  

      If want bigger changes, need to get in touch with LF re technical

      resources to help with website
    • Content
      • Working on personas --- understand the types of people/profiles and their path
