We scheduled for this meeting to discuss the way to refer to license exception or “additional permissions” in a broader way. I have drafted some proposed changes to the way we describe this part of the SPDX License List in a Google doc, using tracked changes as compared to the current text. You can see that here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vWlwlIN1IKNn-lJMx1iqZ7A2Xb-b3lTZ9WjhRQov-DE/edit?usp=sharing
If you are unable to view that link, the basic premise is to replace “exception” with “license modifier” to use a more neutral and inclusive term. (attempts to download in .pdf or .odt did not include the tracked changes… grrr)
We will also discuss specific requests for:
the Linux kernel enforcement statement - https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/issues/655
the GPL Cooperation Commitment - https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/issues/714
as well as the variants for the Google patent grant - https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/issues/646
I’m sorry I didn’t send this sooner to enable some pre-meeting email discussion, but would greatly appreciate if people could have a look at these items prior to the call so we can hit the ground running.
