Next Release Project

  • see
  • Discussion on optional fields
    • Agree to make snippet byte range optional
    • PackageLicenseDeclared
      • Semantics different from other fields
    • VerificationCode
      • Discussed public repositories having a checksum already

^^^ Discussed whether required since file checksums are in the SPDX document – although there is also a proposal to not include all files in the SPDX document

      • Tabled the discussion for now
    • Document namespace – needed for external document references.
      • Some confusion on how to apply – seems arbitrary
      • Only requirement is that it is unique
      • Agree to update the documentation and add best practices to describe this field more clearly
    • Document name
      • Required for the RDF model
      • Could provide some best practices and/or better documentation
      • Proposal to have a default of “Document” since we have a namespace
