Re: Special SPDX General Meeting & V2.0 Overview this Thursday
Lamons, Scott (Open Source Program Office) <scott.lamons@...>
Thanks for the great presentation today on SPDX 2.0 modeling. I really like the evolutionary approach (i.e. adding the relationship functionality on top of what’s already in the 1.2 spec with minimal deprecation). This will make migration much easier and it makes a lot of sense from a business perspective.
And I appreciate you taking it down to a reasonably non-technical level!

On Behalf Of Gary O'Neall
Attached are a few slides I'll use to go over the SPDX 2.0 approach and model on tomorrow's call. In the tech team we are starting to transition from working on the model to the specification itself. I'll briefly go over the results of our modeling work some of the implications of our model on the 2.0 spec.
For those of you who were not able to make it to the face-to-face meetings at the Collab Summt, it was all very productive and successful. (See my latest blog to get a flavor to the interactions: http://spdx.org/news/2014-04-01/open-collaboration-changes-everything...including-spdx ) As a consequence of those meetings, there’s a been step increase in progress since the last General Meeting, so this is a good good one to catch and get an overview from the team leads.
The Tech Team has been converging on the approach for V2.0. Gary has volunteered to provide an overview of the current thinking (which is gelling nicely) for anyone who’s not been a regular participant in the TT meetings. He will gear it towards business folks and lawyers, but anyone is welcome. This is a great opportunity to make sure we are all singing off the same sheet of music. We’ll target the last 30 mins of the meeting for this overview.
Meeting Time: Thurs, April 3, 8am PDT / 10 am CDT / 11am EDT / 15:00 UTC. http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
