Maybe we can coordinate details on this at the Collab Summit meeting.

Kevin and Guillaume,

As you can tell, we have public transit in the Bay Area, but it is not
particularly well coordinated across systems. I suspect that the best
approach
will be some combination of public transit and car-pooling with colleagues
which
we should be able to arrange during the Linux Summit (and we hope that there
will be more people coming to the SPDX forum from out of town who have not yet
figured out the logistical challenge).

A specific suggestion is to take SF Muni / Caltrain to Mountain View or a
similar stop on the Peninsula and one of us who lives nearby could pick you up
on our way to Cisco. For time, the best approach is to take one of the
Express
trains. I am pretty sure that I could pick up some colleagues this way but I
may not have room for four.

cheers, Michael

Two of us from Digium will be coming to the Bay Area to participate in the
LF
Collaboration Summit and SPDX events. We'll be staying near Union Square and
aren't planning to have a rental vehicle since nearly all of our activities
in the Bay Area can be reached via public transit.

However, the SPDX Forum in San Jose is not practical to reach via public
transit from downtown San Francisco (two hours each way, it appears, twice
as
long as driving). We could of course rent a vehicle for that day, but that
seems a bit wasteful since it would be parked nearly all day.

I'm posting this here in hopes that someone might offer up a creative
solution (or two, or three). If there are other non-Bay Area participants
who
will be in the same situation, we could try to arrange some ride-sharing. If
anyone who lives in the area would be willing to offer carpool services
(we'd
be happy to offset the costs) that would work as well.
Philippe and me will be in the same situation
No idea up to now about the best solution.

H everyone:

Registration is now open for the SPDX Forum.

We need everyone’s help to make this a success by inviting other people outside the current SPDX group who may be interested in learning more!  You have two tasks:

1. Register yourself
Go to the following address:
http://www.spdx.org/wiki/spdx-forum-managing-open-source-software-licenses-suppliers-and-customers

Click one of the Register Now links and fill out the Registration form.

2. Invite others
Send out email to others that might be interested.  Below is a text blurb that you can paste in your email.  Of course you can feel free to edit or write your own as well.

Kim

-----------
I would like to personally invite you to participate in the SPDX Forum:  Managing Open Source Licenses with Suppliers and Customers

The SPDX Forum is a one-day meeting on April 6 that will help companies learn how to streamline their open source license compliance processes.  The forum will bring together procurement, supply chain, legal and technical staff at companies that use open source technologies in their products to discuss challenges and best practices for complying with open source licenses across the software supply chain.  

We will also discuss how the SPDX(TM) (Software Package Data Exchange) standard, developed by a workgroup of the Linux Foundation, can help companies to improve and streamline compliance efforts.

Registration is free, but space is limited.  Please  http://www.spdx.org/wiki/spdx-forum-managing-open-source-software-licenses-suppliers-and-customers to register or learn more.

Also for those us that will be using Muni/BART while in the city, there are three Muni bus lines that go pretty directly between Union Square and the San Francisco Caltrain Station (web site says 20 minutes between those locations).

There is light rail in San Jose that goes right up Tasman drive by Cisco.
I'll check into whether it goes to the San Jose Caltrain station -- I assume
it does.

By the time you do the walk/train/light rail it will be a fairly lengthy
trip, although driving at that time in the morning can be pretty heavy
traffic as well.
Right... those of us not familiar with left coast rush hour think that more than an hour to get some place for a meeting is excessive :-)

You could also head down to San Jose Thursday night and stay at a hotel
closer to the location of the Forum.
Since there others in the same situation, I'm thinking Caltrain to the San Jose Caltrain Station and then a shared taxi to the Cisco campus is probably the most practical choice. Google Maps says the taxi ride should be 20 minutes or so, so that would make the whole journey somewhere around 75 minutes, which is not awful.

Yes -- it will be a bit of a ride. The Caltrain drops you off in Central
San Jose. Cisco is on the very east side of San Jose.

Take Caltrain from San Francisco, then transfer to VTA Light Rail (

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cisco_Way_%28VTA%29 ), walk.
I must be missing something obvious here. I spent a bit of time looking
at the Caltrain and VTA websites (and transit.511.org).

Caltrain from San Francisco Station to Mountain View Station takes 45
minutes on one of the morning 'express' routes. It would then take 40
minutes or so of light rail, bus and walking to get to Cisco Way.
Alternatively Caltrain can take you all the way to Tamien Station, and
then a single light rail ride will take you to Cisco way, but again the
total time is over two hours.

I have just requested an invitation, as has our in-house counsel, and we're really looking forward to getting involved in the SPDX effort.

However, I noticed that the response to my invitation request said it could take up to 10 business days to be approved (or denied). Given that we need to schedule travel as soon as we can in order to minimize costs, I'm wondering if it's really going to take that long. Ten business days from today is the 22nd, which is less than two weeks before the event.

Re: Recommend Changing SPDX License Identifier for Eclipse PublicLicense 1.0 to "Eclipse-1.0"

Mike Milinkovich
 

Oh, so _you're_ the guys to blame for people calling the license "Eclipse"!

That explains everything.

(just kidding)

FWIW, Fossology uses Eclipse_v1.0 but I think EPL works as well and folks
would get use to it over time. My primary question/concern is the effect
of
changes like this on backward compatibility and general user confusion.
On
the other hand, if we are going to change it I suppose now is the time
since
there is probably not a lot of SPDX 1.0 implemented yet.

Thanks all, your replies are truly appreciated.

I withdraw the request to change the License identifier for the
Eclipse Public License from EPL-1.0 to Eclipse-1.0.

Separately, we are looking for knowledgeable individuals like those
who replied to participate more fully with SPDX. Please consider
joining one of the SPDX working teams.

Thanks,

Tom

I've only ever heard it referenced as the EPL.

FWIW, I don't think I've ever encountered "Eclipse" meaning "Eclipse
Public License". Always EPL or the full expanded name.

Thanks Mike,



The Eclipse Foundation certainly gets the big vote regarding how
their license is referred to.



My experience is primarily commercial ISVs in the tools space, about
a dozen, ranging in yearly revenue from $50M to $500M. In written
correspondence over a period of several years, the phrase "Eclipse
1.0" is used more than 15x "EPL 1.0". The folks using the ²Eclipse
1.0² term have included many substantial contributors to the Eclipse
project (for instance, Borland Software).



Let¹s let this cook for one more day.



If the feedback continues as it has, I¹ll simply withdraw the
request. Like you, I am surprised at the disparity in usage of the
abbreviated term ­ I rarely see EPL, and assumed that this
suggestion would pass through the SPDX group as more of an FYI.



Thanks again -- it is great to have community postings so the
broadest view is represented.



Tom

Tom,



FWIW, It is certainly news to me that people refer to the EPL as
"Eclipse". I have universally heard it referred to as the EPL. I
have literally never heard it referred to as Eclipse.



I don't have a strong feeling about this one way or another. I just
find it surprising that my experience is so contrary to yours.

Subject: Recommend Changing SPDX License Identifier for Eclipse
Public License
1.0 to "Eclipse-1.0"



Hello SPDX license list interested parties,



I would like to propose that we change the License Identifier for
the Eclipse Public License 1.0 on the SPDX License List from
³EPL-1.0² to ³Eclipse-1.0².



I suggest this because ³Eclipse² is how the license is commonly
referred
to.



Secondarily, I have recently received 2 calls when documents
referred to EPL-1.0, and the Identifier was simply not visually
recognized by the user (yes, they could have clicked the link, but
if Eclipse is the common usage, let¹s go with it unless there is a
cost).



Any concerns?



Thanks,



Tom
