Student Reports

  • All projects making progress – details in gitter

Spec Issues

  • Logged at
  • Updating license – Kate will update issue – no concerns about moving to CC by 4.0
  • Each sentence suggested – consensus that one sentence per line would make sense with additional tooling, but since we do not have such tooling we agreed that it should not be pursued
  • Updated license list – Upgrade in the next fix release, once the automation is in place
  • SPDX redirects – Kate taking issue

Next SPDX Specification

  • Detailed notes can be found at
  • Request for annotation type
    • Scenario – additional patent information and reviews
    • Suggestion that we change cardinality for annotation to allow for more than one annotation types
    • Agree we could add the multiple annotations and change the cardinality
    • Target 2.2
    • Suggested annotations – patent, trademark, export
    • Proposed license annotation type license – inconclusive, decision postponed
      • Discussed the possibility of adding annotations to the license – could be complex to express in tag/value for complex license types
