JSON File discussion

  • Overview provided of the JSON file and Kyle's contribution
  • Do we add this now?
    • Agreed OK to add
  • Do we make it public?
    • Proposal to wait until Linux con to announce
      • Allows for time for feedback
      • Once available we can create a link
      • Make a news article that we're looking at it
  • Proposal REST API's for license list
  • Generally agreed that the name "licenses.json" was OK, but there may be some future conflict if we add other JSON formats (e.g. with more detail).
    • Agreed to start a thread on the name of the license list file on the tech list


  • Reviewed examples
  • jQuery/Sizzle as another example
  • Best practice should be to keep the file separate - but the JavaScript best practice is to combine the file

Use Case Review/Examples

  • Jack added some SPDX 2.0 examples at
  • Create an examples git repository
  • Example with snippets using comments - mashup with Java File
  • Use our own tools
  • Can attach use cases
  • Action - Use the Wiki to add more examples. Jack will continue to work on the specific examples.
