Re: SPDX at Eclipsecon 2012 - BOF Session

Mahshad Koohgoli

So, here is the summary of what we could do at EclipseCon 2012 – tx to Mike Milinkovich and Anne Jacko of Eclipse.


a)    We have a tentative timeslot for 7 pm on Wednesday 28th March, right after an Eclipse reception.

b)    They need to know the numbers- how many people we expect to attend the BOF- so they can get the right room for us. The cut-off is 15th January.

c)     Once we have an indication of the BOF participants, then we can socialize it (through spdx channels/tweets/blogs).  Also Ian, of Eclipse marketing, will help us spread the word through Eclipse blogs, newsletters etc (thank you Ian).


Questions I need help with:

1)    What’s the best way to see how many will be interested in attending the BOF?  A poll through spdxxxxx@fossbazaar? Any other channels we could use?

2)    BOF session title?  How about “What’s Happening with SPDX”? (in fact better to expand SPDX in case there are still souls out there that do not know).  A better, more catchy title, would help!

Mahshad — Are you going to be there?

If so, would you be willing to organize the BOF?

I think this is a good opportunity to create awareness in  Eclipse community. A BOF is a great idea. Any other takers?

The program for EclipseCon has already been finalized. But if anyone wanted to organize a meeting room or a BOF, that may still be possible.

Hi all

We have created a list of potential events where we would like to have a talk on SPDX.  We will create a few abstracts that anyone can use (or modify).  It would also be helpful to have talks about use cases from some of the end user members of SPDX.

If you are planning to be at one of these events (or an event that's not listed)  and would like to submit a talk on SPDX, please let Kim know kim.weins@....  We’ll try to coordinate so that we can cover as many events as possible.

This list is also available at

    • Android Builder/Embedded – Feb CA
    • Collab Summit – Apr CA -- Kim to submit a talk
    • Enterprise Summit – May NY
    • LinuxCon Japan – Jun Yokohama
