1) new license requests, see:

  • ICU License - to be added
  • W3C Software Notice and License (1998-07-20) - to be added; (change full name on existing W3C to add date, and avoid confusion)
  • W3C Software Notice and License (1998-05-19) - not adding; too old, only was in use for 2 months. no one had seen it used in wild on call. can always add later if need be.
  • W3C Document Notice and License (1999-04-05) - not adding now - see comments below re: non-open licenses
  • W3C Document License (2002-12-31) - not adding now
  • this raised discussion as to whether to allow non-open source licenses on list with example of Sun Binary License again and prompted a mini-review of the license addition criteria:
  • this license is really a documentation license, so
  • probably should raise this annually in any case, to revisit the guiding principles - important to continue to ask: is this criteria still right?

2) 2.0 update - looked at SPDX License List

3) Collab Summit overview (coming up soon!)

  • who's going? Dennis, Paul, Jilayne, Mark, (Alan, Sam - no)
