Comments on specific issues are contained in the particular GitHub issue threads at

Much of the discussion focused on the request to add CAL-1.0, in issue 953, along with specifics of formatting / how it would be added. Particularly relevant as the license text instructions incorporate use of the SPDX identifier. Specific discussion included:

  • where to place license use info – at the top vs. at the bottom (cf Apache-2.0, GPL-*)
  • where to place the identifier, in particular the “Combined Work Exception”
  • lead-in describing how to apply the license
  • PR and XML files
