*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Due to  lack availability of some of the team leads, we are pushing this occurrence of the General Meeting out 1 week. This is a one time move; we'll be back to the normal first Thursday cadence in March. 

I am not sure everyone on the General Meeting mailing list has this invitation on the calendar. Please excuse the redundancy of my sending out a separate notice to the list, which I will do on Monday.

Please accept so this recurring meeting is on your calendar, however no need to respond.

Introduction

Daniel Hamacher <danielhamacher.dh@...>
 

Hello SPDX Team,

my name is Daniel and I am a second year University student. I would like to get involved in OpenSource and I got interested in this project. I looked through the Bug list and found item #1129 which I would like to work on. What do I need to do to get assigned to this item or any other item in the future? 

Thanks,
Daniel

Forwarding to SPDX legal list for any discussion. BCC SPDX general list,

January SPDX General Meeting Goes Virtual - PLEASE READ

Philip Odence
 

Because the General Meeting falls on Jan 2 and a number of folks will be out or just back from long holidays, we'll do this one virtually, i.e. I will ask all the team leads to provide team updates to me via email and I will issue minutes and solicit comment/thoughts on this list. 

In the meantime, some recommended reading:

Jilayne, Scott and I wrote an article for the I8l FOSS Law Review: 
http://www.ifosslr.org/ifosslr/article/view/89 

I wrote a blog on the state of SPDX (and am still planning another to wrap the year…we'll see): 
http://spdx.org/news/2013-11-14/spdx...how-are-we-doing 


Finally, keep your eyes open for a v2.0 requirements doc that Kirsten Newcomer has been pulling together at the behest of the Business Team (and with review by the Tech Team).

TR: FOSS: next steps

RUFFIN MICHEL
 

On Wednesday the OMG held a meeting on standardisation issues between organizations on FOSS issues.

It was a kick-off meeting on the topic

I would like to invite you to be part of the discussion if interested.

To do so you need to send an email to request@... to be part of the FOSS OMG mailing list

Bellow is an email of Richard Soley CEO of OMG

 

Michel
----------------------------------------------
On Wednesday 11 December, the OMG hosted a FOSS Licensing Standards Workshop at the OMG Technical Meeting in Santa Clara, California. 
There was significant discussion about the need for new model-based standards (as well as best practices standards) in the area of FOSS licensing.

The areas in which discussion centered, taking into account as much as possible existing standards such as SPDX, included:

  • To kick off the discussion, a reminder of the areas of consideration for new standards, taking into account and using as much as possible existing standards such as SPDX:
  • best practices for choosing a license and potentially agreeing on standard legal FOSS clauses
  • professional certification of FOSS licensing usage
  • capturing FOSS IP information in a Wikipedia-style database
  • agreeing standard contract clauses to lower the cost of supplier/customer relationships, M&A, etc.
  • standardizing unique software identifiers to support the automation of cross-organization identification of licenses & software

The agenda for the day, including presentation materials used, is at http://www.omg.org/news/meetings/tc/ca-13/special-events/FOSS.htm

Nov General Meeting Minutes

Philip Odence
 

Just posted the minutes:

Special note:
The SPDX Legal group will be holding a special break out session to review a number of software examples where the SPDX licensing syntax (i.e., license list + AND/OR operators) may not be sufficient to represent the licensing terms of the software. For instance the group will be looking at the various kinds of special exception terms, the use of the ‘+’ in license names and programs derived from multiple source and library files, where each is potentially under a different license. The group will report back to the Legal and Tech working groups with its findings. If you are interested in attending or would like to submit relevant examples send email to Mark.Gisi@....

Phil

We would like to invite the members of the SPDX group to participate. From my discussions with a lot of companies since two years on this topic, there is more and more interested parties.

1.2 and BoF Report

Philip Odence
 

It's official, 1.2 is up.  Again, huge thanks to all who contributed. Credit Mark Gisi with finding this apt quote:

“people throw stones at you and you turned them into milestones”

             ― Sachin Tendulkar (Ted Williams of Cricket)


I had a good BoF session with folks from Intel, Qualcomm, HP, Orange, Valeo, and others. There were about 12 including a reporter from Munich. I thought this was a terrific turnout given that it was at the end of a long day and directly competed with the beer/wine and appetizers.I went through a presentation, but it was much more of a discussion and there was healthy discussion of just about every slide; we went for an hour and could have gone longer. At least a couple of the participants indicated enough interest to get involved and help. We'll see.


1.2 Announced at LinuxCon Europe

Philip Odence
 

I was going to hold of until the press release tomorrow, but Jim Zemlin jumped the gun slightly, prominently featuring the SPDX 1.2 release in his keynote this morning. Sorry I wasn't quicker getting my camera out, or I would include a pic. The press release is scheduled for 9am UK time Tuesday.

Big thanks and congrats to Kate and the Technical Team for achieving this milestone. And honorable mentions to Jilayne and the Legal team and Jack & Scott and the Business Team for their support. 

Will let you know how my SPDX BoF goes, but keep expectations in check as I seem to be competing with free (as in free beer) beer during my early evening timeslot.

Best,
Phil



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

SPDX Awareness Building

Philip Odence
 

At LinuxCon Europe next week, the Linux Foundation will send out a press release announcing version 1.2. Also, in addition to a presentation for Black Duck, I will be hosting BoF session on SPDX and will be joining Claus Peter Wiedemann of Bearing Point to present SPDX at the Automotive Linux event later in the week.

In Asia, YoungTaek Kim will be presenting Samsung's use of SPDX at the Korean Linux Forum in Nov and at the Japan Open Compliance Summit in December. For those who missed the session in New Orleans, here are Taek's slides: http://events.linuxfoundation.org/sites/events/files/slides/Piloting%20SPDX%20in%20Samsung%20-%20case%20studies%20and%20experiences%20%28YoungTaek%20Kim%29.pdf

Lastly, I presented in introduction to SPDX last week at the GENIVI all members meeting in San Diego last week. There is good awareness of SPDX amongst anyone involved in licensing for GENIVI (the open source In-Vehicle Infotainment platform) and this was an opportunity to build awareness with a broader group.

It's exciting to see the word get out across the globe!

Best,
Phil
