Re: on the variability of BSD and MIT licenses

Daniel,
Thanks to you and Trevor for contributing.
I agree with Guillaume. This is great discussion for the Legal Team.
Let's remove the general list from the thread. (also, please note that the fossbazaar list you originally used is out of date)

Hi Daniel,
Yes indeed, it looks to be  really great regarding SPDX relevance to adress and describe large scale situation.
I guess you will push some of your recommendation in the Tech/Legal WG to upgrade
http://spdx.org/wiki/spdx-license-list-match- guidelines

Season's greatings.

Hi everybody,

This term I taught a course on Intellectual Property and Software
Development. the students were expected to conduct some research as part
of the evaluation. One of them, Trevor Maryka (who I think is also
subscribed to this list) took on the problem of trying to determine how
'variable' are the BSD and the MITs and what this means for their
standardization under SPDX. he makes a set of recommendations to SPDX
(see section 5). I am attaching his paper. It is, in my opinion, very
good news for SPDX.

Taxonomy to classify types of software licences

stijn.goedertier@...
 

Hi all,

I would like to bring to your attention that the AMDS.SW Working Group has released 9 software taxonomies  under an open licence with multilingual labels in 7 languages. These taxonomies [3] include:  Licence Type, Intended Audience, Natural Language, Operating System, Programming Language,Status, Topic, User Interface / Graphical Environment, and Publisher Type.

I think especially the Licence Type taxonomy could be of particular interest to the SPDX community. The taxonomies can be viewed on this web page:
https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/svn/adms_foss/amds_sw_taxonomies/ADMS_SW_v1.00_Taxonomies.html
and can be downloaded here:
https://joinup.ec.europa.eu/asset/adms_foss/release/release100

The taxonomies are represented in a machine readable format: the SKOS standard of W3C. The majority of these taxonomies were originally made available in March 2012 by SourceForge under CC BY 3.0 [2]. We hope that the use of common taxonomies to categorise software will contribute to making software better searchable on the Web.

with kind regards,
Stijn

Re: licensing data of FOSS

Really nice work Daniel, thanks for pointing it out. :)

Looking forward to seeing the SPDX files being generated, but this is going to definitely be handy to do some cross referencing with, as is.

Hi everybody,

We are trying to create a Web site where we publish the
licensing data
of open source applications. This is work in progress, and
it needs
work.

We are trying to analyze different versions of applications
that appear
in Debian. Each app is broken down by license (as identified
by Ninka.

For example, zlib:


http://ag.cs.uvic.ca/project/1114/files/1/

or sqlite

http://ag.cs.uvic.ca/project/1302/files/1/

You can navigate the applications here:

http://ag.cs.uvic.ca/


Hopefully this will help in the development of SPDX.

SPDX discussion on the BusyBox mailing list.

Bradley M. Kuhn <bkuhn@...>
 

I've not had much time to keep up with SPDX in the last few months, but
I wanted to let everyone know that "the thread" that I've been insisting
for years ought to be started on the BusyBox mailing list has finally
begun! I'm very glad to see it.

Here are links the first two messages:
http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2012-September/078399.html
http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/busybox/2012-September/078416.html

I think a thread is likely to get moving, so I encourage anyone
interested in doing a "real world" example of SPDX file join the BusyBox
list and participate. Conservancy is really hoping to get heavily
involved at this point in building a good SPDX file for BusyBox and our
other projects; I'm looking for ways to make that happen now.

Proposed F2F in Oct - cancelled

Ibrahim Haddad <ibrahim@...>
 

Hi All,
It appears it will be difficult to get a critical mass of people together for the F2F in 2 weeks, so we are pushing the meeting out. Thanks to all who signed up on the web and made an effort to plan to attend. Please direct any inquiries about F2F mtg to the WG leadership who will determine when we have the next meeting and will call for it.
Ibrahim
