Manbeck, Jack

Sure. Were just now starting the process of applying to Google for their Summer of Code 2019. If we do get awarded slots there is a specific process you must follow. I suggest you get signed up with them and review what the process is. You would need to submit a proposal for any of the projects we have, assuming we are selected.   We then go through the proposals and pick the best one. I’m over simplifying this a bit but that’s the general idea.


The spdx tools themselves are based on Java.  You can visit our github project here:


We have a few other online tools but off hand I don’t recall what they are written in. Possibly some python and others.


Gary, can you fill in that gap?

Hi Varshak,


Are you looking to work on a google summer of code project for SPDX or help contribute to the SPDX tools or specification, etc.,. (not google summer of code)?

Hi Varshak,

     Welcome!   Glad you're interested in participating in our community.  I am copying the spdx-tech mail list where we 

discuss the GSoC efforts.


     Ideas we've come up with so far are listed on:,  but we're in active idea gathering  mode this week,  so suggestions are welcome as well.
