1) Monthly SPDX General call was earlier today and GSoC student, Tushar Mittal, presented his work so far on the online XML editor.

  • to try out tool in development and provide feedback. There may be bugs! Function to make Github pull request directly is being added (so keep in mind if testing)
  • question as to whether generated PR comes from a person’s account or some generic; what about ability comment?
  • follow-on feature to have way to view-as-webpage option
  • we need to consider, when this is done, how does this impact/change the instructions for suggesting a new license:
    • want to keep email option for people who aren’t comfortable
    • or can use editor and generate PR directly? add option later
  • maybe update to align with maybe just use the latter
    • update webpage to just have a link to
    • update links to Request page on other pages elsewhere
    • once confident we have caught those pages, can get rid of webpage

2) 3.2 is now live

  • update for 3.2 major changes to email list
  • explore adding “release notes” - is there a way to automate a list based on milestones going forward?
