  1. Title: Upstream maintainer providing SPDX data at a URL
  2. Primary Actor: Member of upstream maintainer team
  3. Goal in Context: To provide a URL at which the SPDX data for a particular release of the copyrightable artifacts in their project can be retrieved, so that the SPDX data can be simply referenced.
  4. Stakeholders and Interests:
    1. Upstream maintainers:
      1. To communicate the licensing information for their copyrightable artifacts.
      2. To have their licenses respected
    2. Consumers of upstreams copyrightable artifacts:
      1. To receive accurate and clear information of licensing of artifacts
      2. To be able to comply easily with licenses for artifacts
      3. To be able to subset, extend, or aggregate artifacts and pass on clear authoritative verifiable license for the resulting new copyrightable artifacts.
  5. Preconditions:
    1. Upstream has selected licenses for the copyrightable artifacts originating with the project (package, files, etc)
    2. Upstream has indentified license data for other copyrightable artifacts they consume
  6. Main Success Senario: Upstream communicates accurate complete licensing information for their copyrightable artifacts in an SPDX data format at a URL.
  7. Failed End Condition: Upstream communicates inaccurate incomplete licensing information for their copyrightable artifacts.
  8. Trigger:
    1. Project release
