1) Tracking of new licenses in Google sheet

  • Dennis to update for newest release (calling 2.7 for now) to check against

2) need help on XML review

  • Alexios can help - yeah!
  • also aim to do a license on call and keep line open for a hack fest to discuss as we work
  • did this on end of call

3) Transition to “GPL-2.0-only” - and potentially removing "+" operator (see: ) Steps needed:

  • get summary of other license “other version” to make sure no issues created by discontinuing operator "+"
  • discuss on legal call for Aug 3 based on above
  • joint discussion on tech call Aug 8 to discuss any other impacts
  • map out implementation and then report on general call

4) revised text on exceptions description at top of that page

  • need to look at suggestions and normalize with revised recommendation in total
