  • Draft proposal from Kate (
  • Should we support snippets in an SPDX document that refer to files contained outside the SPDX document?
    • Downstream edits of SPDX document use cases - probably good to have copy of the file
    • Since it always have to refer back to a file, we should require a copy of the file
    • Leaning towards requiring the file to be present in the same doc for a snippet
  • Name is not required
    • Requires a change to the model
    • Could we make in optional?
      • Can we distinguish that in RDF
    • Would need to update tools
    • Snippet naming left open, use a proposal
      • Need a proposal on how the name would be proposed
      • Could be nothing, optional or mandatory
      • jQuery UI use case - "button" is generated
  • Discussion on including snippets for files not included in the SPDX document
    • Needs to be present in some SPDX document - may require adding the file to the SPDX Document
    • Need to document the requirement
  • Line numbers - left open - pick up conversation

Review SPDX Identifier wiki page
