Re: Where to put issues for "getting started with SPDX" documentation?

Manbeck, Jack

Yes! I think this is a great idea. We’ve tried in the past to do this but could never get people “focused” on it. I agree its needed.


I vote to put it  the list in GitHub. The wiki doesn’t seem to be used much anymore. I would create a repo for  “getting started” collateral. Besides the questions we could add examples and other documents over time. The someone can just grab it when they want to  get started,



We do have a FAQ: that may have some good info as well if you have not seen it.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [spdx] Where to put issues for "getting started with SPDX" documentation?


Howdy, team.


In last week’s Outreach call we discussed the lack of “getting started with SPDX” documentation, info that could take someone from Zero to SPDX. Currently it’s really hard for new people to show up and use/generate/understand SPDX, but we can (with time) fix that.


We decided that step one of this would be to start collecting ideas for newbie questions that’ll need answering, etc. We’ll do this in issues to make it easier to keep track of them.


The next question is…where should those issues go? The -spec repo isn’t a good fit for them, neither is outreach. Do we perhaps need a new -docs repo…? I don’t know, but it’s worth considering. Or is this premature optimization and we should just pick a repo to log the issues in and then move them later if needed?


So what do y’all think? Where should these issues go for now?
