1) Explanation text for deprecated licenses - made minor revisions and talked through how various aspects of deprecated license info will display on HTML pages:

  • This text will go above the table of deprecated licenses, then you can click on each license taking to the page. That page will have note at top, "this license has been deprecated" and then the Notes on Deprecation can be seen there.
  • Show "deprecated as of" on individual page for license definitely; show in table if there's room
  • can we also add a column in regular list that is "added as of" - (for tools, Phil's idea) but if tools are pulling from original, then doesn't matter if info is there. If the latter, then does format in spreadsheet need to be better optimized - Phil to follow-up on this issue/question with Gary

2) Linux Collab Summit - update from Jack We have Thursday and Friday (may do tech team meetings for Wed afternoon). Phil put out call for papers, we are in charge of our own track. Talks scheduled so far, for Thursday:

3) License Expression Syntax FAQs

  • some edits
