SPDX Thurs General Meeting Reminder


Phil Odence
 

EMEA folks- US had not changed clocks yet, so the meeting time at 11EDT is an hour off from normal for you.

 

We will have a special presentation from Thomas Steenbergen about how we have been evolving SPDX to support use cases for security vulnerabilities. This is an especially timely topic as much of the SBOM buzz is around this use case. We’ve made good progress with SPDX 2.3 and more progress is planned for 3.0.
