Agenda

1) Discussed proposal for Google Summer of Code: https://wiki.spdx.org/view/GSOC/GSOC_ProjectIdeas#Add_New_License_Submital_Feature_to_Online_Tools and response to feedback Gary gave to a student interested in doing this project as per email sent (also can be seen here: https://lists.spdx.org/pipermail/spdx-legal/2018-March/002497.html

2) Looked at PRs and Issues (new license/exception requests) for pending 3.1 release

  • merged PR # 614 and added new license: Linux-OpenIB PR # 620
  • discussed new license request Issue #619 - to be added, but needed to check it’s not already on the list - confirmed it is not after call
  • Next meeting: need to better nail down process for reviewing new license/exception requests. A few have been raised via Issues and gone unnoticed. Recommendation is to spend ~half of each legal call going through any new requests, so we are on a regular tick.
