SPDX Governance Next Steps
As previewed in the June General Meeting, the Core Team has submitted a proposal for changing the governance of SPDX. The reasoning for the change and substance are the same as what we discussed in that meeting. However, we have simplified the implementation considerably. Importantly, the project will continue to operate day to day as we have for over a decade but with better defined governance. Attached is a document that summarizes the proposal and provide links to the details.
In the second half of next Thursday’s General Meeting we will try to reach consensus on the proposal. In the meantime, once you have studied the matter, provide feedback or raise any questions on this thread. (Note, the many of the details are housed in a GitHub repo but again comments/questions go here.) If we do not reach consensus on Thursday, we may hold the discussion over to the following meeting.
