SPDX 1.2 - final review - input needed by Oct 18 EOD.


kate.stewart@...
 

Dear SPDX participants,
    The attached specification has all the bugzilla issues targetted to be resolved in SPDX 1.2 addressed, so its pretty close (if no significant feedback in the next few days) we'll be publishing.     The changes since 1.1 have primarily involved standardizing some additional fields for supporting the supply chain information needs,  resolving issues that were found at the bakeoff at Collab by the participants, and giving more flexibility on naming of the licence references that aren't in the SPDX license list ( which has been updated too! ).   There is also a new appendix on the License Template that is being used in the license list. 

    If you have a chance to review it, and spot something that should be fixed:  
1)  If its a typo, spelling, or grammar issue - please send me the page number and description of what should be changed in an email.  I'll do my best to incorporate it in the final pass on Saturday.  
2) If its a problem with the fields and content or a suggestion for further improvement,  please open a bug in bugzilla [1]. 
3) If you have a question that doesn't fall into one of the two above cases,  please feel free to email spdx-tech@...

A very big THANK YOU to all of the bakeoff participants and users of the SPDX 1.1 specification who opened bugs, as well as the tech-team members who worked out fixes for the issues.  In particular, I'd like to thank Bill Schineller, Gary O'Neall, Jack Manbeck and Mark Gisi for their excellent help cleaning up this final version of the specification and getting it ready to publish over the last month.   

Looking forward to your feedback.

Thanks, 
Kate
