Additional Notes from KATE

Here are the notes I took, since Steve was kind enough to host.

William went through and did a review of SPDX 3.0 Base Profile highlighting the differences.

Artifacts - are promoting a specific External Reference (likely PURL) to be used Document - Now has a set of profiles that

Complies with a profile - expect that mandatory are supported. If not have profile - can use the field, but not expected to meet the full requirements.

Next step is converting this into the written text. Move into the other areas as well.

Now’s the time to chime in in SPDX 3.0 specification if you have

Mark Baushke - problem on how to express the overall license. Userland and Kernel based licensing in one package. Use Case interested in - Fast packet forwarding - kernel module with GPL2, and userland. …. show how to represent.

Legal Team - 3.11 release - pushing it out until Nov 25th, today one more meeting. 11 new license requests have been submitted in September. Help requested.  : Commenting on licenses in github comments. XML files.

Web site

           Refresh is ongoing.   Feedback and suggestions are welcome.   
           Mission discussed last month has now been incorporated

Technical Team - SPDX 3.0 in progress Online tools - yaml conversions coming.

Aveek - Observing SPDX - Community building and bringing new people into group. Group chat/slack? — use gitter, start discussing there as well. Need to improve our launching platform. Slack group? - with mentoring and advocates how to start off.

Aveek has volunteered to provide his findings to help us grow the community next month as a guest speaker.

Possibly Steve, Jilayne & Paul can provide overview of SPDX 3.0 License Profile in January?
