License Expression Syntax

  • Dedicated appendix section
  • Current spec has disjunctive/conjunctive language sprinkled throughout - These will be changed to reference the new license expression syntax
  • Will close out bug for expressing "or later" license (bug 591)

Relationship and Usage

  • Continuing going through the spreadsheet documenting the various relationship and usage proposals
  • Discussion on granularity of patches
    • Decided that fileAdded, fileDeleted, and fileModified are really for modifications and not patches
    • patchOf and patched are relationships are between a patch file and a (package or a file) - renamed and defined relationship in the resultant spreadsheet - see spreadsheet for conclusion
  • Agreed on copyOf to represent the "sameAs", "sourceRef", and "upstreamBinrary" relationship types

2.0 Spec draft process

  • there is a 2.0 spec doc on the wiki (.pdf and .doc version)
  • Will start adding / modifying once we finish relationship types
