Re: SPDX Governance Next Steps

J Lovejoy

Hi Richard,

I love your forward thinking!  First we have to have the review and acceptance of the proposal. Assuming that goes through and as to whether the Yocto Project could be an SPDX member - that is probably a question for the LF, as I'm not sure how one LF project being a member of another LF project works when you have the same "parent".

In any case, I'd think we can figure out something to show the strong support and relationship!

SPDX Community,
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.
FWIW I've been wondering how we could show a relationship between Yocto Project
and SPDX as we are a strong support of it so this looks timely in that regard
assuming we'd be eligible as an associate member?
