SPDX 2.0 Specification Project Overview
This is the next major release of the specification. SPDX 2.0 will extend the specification beyond the package level scope and enhance it to address relationships between artifacts.
Our current plan is to try and get 2.0 done before LinuxCon North America which is roughly August 20th of this year. Our go or no go date to see if we can make it is to have a first draft of the specification by June 1st.
The specification is still under development, so we would not recommend downloading the version from this wiki page until it is further developed.
We have made a lot of progress recently and there are a few artifacts that you can look at to give you and idea on the 2.0 spec. The best starting point is the minutes from the Linux Collab Summit: [LinuxCollab Meeting Minutes ]
The current goal is to have a first draft by June of this year.
The target date is set by the Milestone owner. When completed, the date will be changed to say COMPLETE. The milestone owner should also update the Status column as appropriate.
