  • General agreement

SPDX 2.0 next steps and discussion

  • Next week, focus on the instance diagrams. Kate may not be able to join due to travel.
  • Two weeks from today, discuss the tag/value format for SPDX 2.0
  • 2.0 Draft should be up on the web, but is not advanced enough to publish broadly - target after collab
  • Reviewer and License sections should be largely unchanged
  • Discussion on whether we can simplify that 2 files are identical if they have the same sha1 and filename
    • filename may be relevant for some use cases
    • for most use cases, the sha1 is the important item as it identifies the content of the file
    • should document better the reasons for keeping the filename
    • will keep the files associated with the package for now and not try to optimize by referencing the same file object
  • Reviewer - feedback on email that some enhacements would be nice for 2.0
    • a bug should be added to track
