Review of the 2.1 Spec

  • See updated Google Doc for results of the review:
  • Update section 1.8 to reflect that NONE and NOASSERTION have been clarified
  • In the context of external packages, have a couple examples of scenerios 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7 filled in
  • Section 3.8 - add a Project example for the case when the SPDX document represent a meta level project
  • Discussion on the requirement to have a package in every SPDX document
    • Has been an assumption in the past
    • Correction use case - just refer to another SPDX document that has the package and make a correction
      • Will discuss in the next meeting
  • Should we expand the purpose to include more than just the binary file case? Agree it should be expanded - Rob to propose
  • Discussion on the cardinality of the packageVerificationCode being dependent on the has files field
    • Can not use the OWL constraint
    • Discussed possibly requiring the verification code but changing the algorithm
      • Could not arrive at a satisfactory algorithm for all the use cases discussed
  • External reference ID
    • Rule to add a new pre-defined reference
      • Must have a valid regular expression for the reference
