Re: Tutorials, sample RDF files

Gary O'Neall

Hi Marvin,

Just following up on Bill's email, I would be happy to provide you any
information/background on using SPDX/RDF for Apache.

I've also written a Maven plugin that generates SPDX/RDF files at that may provide another
example application.

The RDF terms are defined at

Let me know what other information I can help with.

Best regards,

Hi Marvin,
Welcome to the list and thanks for your interest!

Is this you?

Regarding samples and tools, our spdx-tools repo is mirrored here:

Primary developer for those tools is Gary O'Neall, with some
contributions from others.

Have a look, and I'm certain that Gary and some hands-on tech team
contributors would be happy to guide you through their use.

I'm an active contributor at the Apache Software Foundation with
regards to release policy and licensing. I'd like to explore the
possibility of having an Apache project supply SPDX data in a release.

I'm imagining that we would supply SPDX data as an RDF file, because
our official releases are 100% source. I also imagine that we would
want to either hand-craft those files or generate them using open
source tools.

Can you point me to some sample RDF files, tutorials, or documentation
explaining how I would go about that? It's been surprisingly
to track down such materials.
