meeting minutes: Linux kernel enforcement statement / GPL Cooperation Commitment
Hi all,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
Thanks for a productive call today. I’ve posted a summary of the discussion in the meeting minutes here: https://wiki.spdx.org/view/Legal_Team/Minutes/2018-11-29
Please note: there was general approval to adding the Kernel enforcement statement and the GPL Cooperation Commitment to the SPDX License List. Theses are slated to be added to 3.4 version of SPDX License List, which is scheduled for end of the year.
If there are any fundamental objections to adding these, that should be raised on the mailing list in the next week.
Any details regarding implementation (markup, naming, etc.) should be discussed on the relevant issues in Github:
or the relevant PR, when created.

Subject: meeting tomorrow/ThursdayHi all,We’ll be back on our regularly scheduled call tomorrow/Thursday at 9am Pacific time / 11am Eastern time / 5pm Central European time.Web conference: http://uberconference.com/SPDXTeamOptional dial in number: 415-881-1586No PIN neededWe 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=sharingIf 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/655the GPL Cooperation Commitment - https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/issues/714as well as the variants for the Google patent grant - https://github.com/spdx/license-list-XML/issues/646I’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.Thanks,Jilayne
