  • Should also accept DNS names in the namespace registry – but need to consider the DNS names are “owned” by the DNS owner – maybe a checkbox
  • Link to licenses – would be a web accessible repository of SPDX documents describing the licenses (optional)

    • Philippe has concerns on the readability, but agreed we could move forward with the proposal
    • Identified the specification needs to be updated since license text will not be in the document for LicenseRef-[namespaces]

  • A pull request will be created to update the spec for 2.2
