Subject: Re: 3.3 release update, meeting minutes
Thanks Gary, Steve - in process of updating now and adding text files.
Gary - I followed the workflow instructions you added. Looks good. One question I had was - do we need to do any “special” formatting to the text file? Or just dump the text and maybe make a few line breaks so it’s somewhat readable? We had some specific spacing guidelines in the past (pre-XML days), but I don’t think those apply any more - right?
[G.O.] We should be able to just dump the text since the tests should ignore any whitespace.
As for the workflow document, where do we ultimately want to store that? Steve and I had made some updates to the Contributing document and corresponding changes elsewhere - I think the goal at that point was to get rid of the web page on ‘Request a New License” and just use the Contributing doc in the Github repo. Thus, when we are ready, we’d add this info to that page? This will make it kind of long - we could consider having a separate page as well, I guess??
[G.O.] Either addition a separate doc to the repository (e.g. CONTRIBUTING-New-License.md) or adding it to the existing contributing would work. I lean towards a single document just to make it easier to maintain.
We probably want to keep an external web page for non-SPDX legal team contributors that would just cover adding the license using the online app to submit a new request. This page wouldn’t cover how we actually pull it into the repo – just submitting the request.
