Bake-off reminder

  • Happening at LinuxCon Europe

License XML

  • Proposal to use JSON-LD rather than XML
    • More straightforward mapping to the current RDFa
    • Could replace the RDFa
    • May not be natural for the markup formats
    • May not be easy to human edit
    • Would be a lot of work to change the legal input format from the current XML
      • Could be programmatically changed
    • Follow-up – example? Study the formats, schedule future
  • Suggestion – adding RDFa for licenses, extending the current properties to include the equiv. of snippets for licenses to refer to sections of the text
    • This would allow a 1:1 mapping to RDFa
  • Reviewed the terms – notes are documented in the google doc at
