Thoughts for Beta Program (for discussion)

Beta program

  • Start with RC1 (Q1 sometime?)
  • Need spec and license list available. PO - asked could we get started with license list incomplete?
  • Ideally 3-5 trading partner pairs (assuming some will not complete it)
  • They agree to designate at least one project where one partner will create an SPDX file and the other partner will receive and review it
  • (they could do this in parallel with a “spreadsheet process”)
  • They provide feedback on what worked, what didn’t, issues, questions
  • SPDX group will provide support – available for ad-hoc and regular calls on technical or other issues
  • Time period – feedback by Jun
  • Want people willing to be quoted in announcement
  • Try to get mix of use cases if possible (ex HP HW supplier and Linux distro, Mobile supply chain, Linux distro/upstream projects, consumer and supplier sides of supply chain)
