  • Tools 
    • no update
  • Specification
    • Spec version compatible with ISO, now available
  • Version 3
  • Most of the work is focused on the core model.  We’re making progress but still have a ways to go to settle on a good code the other profiles will be built on.
  • A new repo has been setup for the SPDX 3.0 spec since it will have a different way of generating the examples and spec and will also be under the new license as part of the new governance we put in place
  • We expect more activities on the profiles next month, especially security
  • Interest in the spec and tools continues to increase – we’re seeing some good signs of adoption from companies, other open source projects, and individuals (if you need more detail – SW360 is engaged in some issues conversations on the tools, the SPDX 2.1 spec issues has some new contributor)
