SPDX 2.2.1

  • Spec available at
  • Nearly complete
  • Rex provided an overview of the current state

    • Need to add to the release checklist to renumber the tables before release
  • HTML tables styling was added
    • Thomas requested the styling be put in CSS rather than inline

SPDX as a Package Manifest

  • Thomas added issue #439
  • Minimal version of SPDX that can be included in the root of a directory for code that does not use a standard package manager (e.g. C/C++ projects that use makefiles)
  • What do we use for the document namespace?
  • What if we want to add a PackageVerificationCode or have FilesAnalyzed=true?
  • Could it be applied to Go binaries?
  • Can we use SPDX lite?
    • Different use cases, are the fields the same?
  • This will not be an additional section of the spec, but more guidance to the users of ORT
  • Thomas also worked on an example for 3.0
    • An issue and PR will be added to the spec

Next Week

  • No call next week due to Linux conference North America
