  1. Title: Embedded Images (e.g. router images, switch images)
  2. Primary Actor: Embedded Image creator
  3. Goal in Context: To allow an Embedded Image Creator to communicate the SPDX data for all of the copyrightable artifacts (packages, files, SDK components, etc) in the embedded image.
  4. Stakeholders and Interests: 
    1. Embedded Image Creator: 
      1. To communicate the licensing information for their copyrightable artifact (the image) including all copyrightable artifacts it contains. 
    2. Consumers of Embedded Images:
      1. To receive accurate and clear information of licensing of the embedded images and all they contain.
      2. To be able to comply easily with licenses for the embedded image and all it contains.
      3. To be able to trust that the embedded images SPDX data is in alignment with the upstream maintainers license assertions of the pieces it contains.
  5. Preconditions: 
    1. Embedded Image Creator understands the things it contains, including any SPDX data if provided.
  6. Main Success Senario: Embedded Image Creator communicates accurate complete licensing information for their package in an SPDX data format for the Embedded Image and all it contains.
  7. Failed End Condition: Embedded Image Creator communicates inaccurate incomplete licensing information for their embedded image.
  8. Trigger:
    1. Release of a new embedded image.
