Updates to 2.1

  • External references - Should we not have defaults for some of the fields? Example - Debian - what is the latest today may not be the appropriate default for tomorrow
  • Draft for external ID's will be available next Week (action for Bill)

License JSON Format

Joint call with Legal on Templatization for the License List input format

Schedule of calls

  • Next week - external ID's
  • Following week - joint call with Legal on templatization input format for license list
  • Following week - external ID's
  • Following weeks before collab - bugs and doc review
  • Collab Summit
    • - walk through of the spec - goal to close on the 2.1 spec
    • Examples of the new features for 2.1
    • Could start developing the new tools in a branch
      • Need to communicate this well since there are now multiple people contributing pull requests

Bug Reviews

  • Assigned un-assigned bugs
  • Discussed ArtifactOf bug - Propose to deprecate ArtifactOf once we complete external ID's
  • Discussion on NOASSERTION - notes captured in the bug, sending it to legal
    • Would be good to have a best practice for the case of proprietary or "all rights reserved" licenses included in an SPDX document (common when doing an audit of a commercial software product)
