  • Do we need a distributed license?
    • Both Jilayne and Steve believe that concluded license can be used
      • This was the original intent of concluded license
    • Thomas expressed an interest in clearly declaring a non-disjunctive license at the point of distribution
      • Different distributed licenses may be chosen for different customers

  • General support for moving to 2 fields for every artifact DeclaredLicense and ConcludedLicense
  • Use of the DistributedLicense needs more discussion
