  • A replacement library for GoLang was contributed by Steve
  • Added DCO sign-off to the tools git repo and golang repos
  • We should go through the other repos and see if the contributing needs to be updated for a DCO signoff

SPDX Spec Contribution Process

  • Contributing document was updated with a pull request from Thomas:
  • Discussion on rebase vs merge
    • Rebase is easier to follow changes
  • Maintaining various development branches
    • Latest deployed version is master
    • Any changes to the latest, a new branch will be made for a hotpatch to the master
    • For later branches, we can do rebases to incorporate the appropriate changes
    • Need to handle merge conflicts which are likely due to breaking changes in the major version
    • Suggest waiting until a release candidate then do a big merge
  • Would like to generate the specification for the in-development branches
