"I guess it will..." does not sound very reassuring, to be honest 🤠

So will it definitely become an "ISO Publicly Available Standard" and is that just a question of time?

Viele Grü0e,

The OpenChain one took a couple of months to appear, though, so I don’t know how quickly this gets updated.

Since the standard was not developed by ISO itself, will the standard be publicly available at <> ?
I think it should.
Do we know?

I’m pleased to announce that SPDX is now ISO/IEC 5962:2021 <;!!A4F2R9G_pg!IzcEk2nRZUdfzZmQ8bT_tVgInVURy_PWptKdAupJoT8av2upo-tStlSbY_4GqlpA$>.
Many people have worked hard over the last decade to get us to this point. Big credit goes to my Steering Committee colleagues who have all been instrumental. And we should recognize that this was all Kate’s brainchild. I believe it was Fall of 2009 when she started informally socializing the idea of a standard SBOM format at Linux Foundation events. Not too long thereafter, in the then single weekly meeting, early participants began debating whether it should be SPDE, ultimately deciding “X” at the end would be catchier. And now it’s officially caught.
Here’s the LF press release: <;!!A4F2R9G_pg!IzcEk2nRZUdfzZmQ8bT_tVgInVURy_PWptKdAupJoT8av2upo-tStlSbY89Cvfim$>
