Re: SPDX face to face at LF CollabSummit

Kim Weins
 

I think we would want to both do a public announcement of spdx rc and have a working meeting. I have that preso I did at owf that we can use as a starting point. I'm happy to present or help prep whatever is needed.

Mark,

That would be very cool. :) Let us know what looks possible.

We'll be doing some brainstorming on the agenda options, and that capability would open up some nice options.

coordinating a presentation between the conferences using

Subject: SPDX face to face at LF CollabSummit

I'm wondering if we should make any plans for the LF
Collaboration
Summit in 2011. The CollabSummit will take place
April 6-8 in San
Francisco. Traditionally, FOSSBazaar had a room there
and we could
request a room and use it for SPDX.

However, I noticed that at least Kate and Rockett will be
presenting
SPDX at the European Legal Network Conference, which
unfortunately
conflicts with the CollabSummit since it takes place on
April 7-8
in Amsterdam.

Any thoughts?

Martin,

The meeting last year at the Collab Summit was very productive so I strongly recommend that we plan an F2F meeting. We can manage the agenda around areas where we may need participation from Kate and Rockett.

Re: SPDX face to face at LF CollabSummit

Great minds think alike!
 
I have been asked to organize a compliance track for the Collaboration Summit and would like to include SPDX briefings and updates as a significant part of the track.  (FOSSBazaar as well.) I was planning to talk initially to Kate and Phil O about SPDX presentations.  All ideas are welcome.

Re: Python History and License

Tom Incorvia
 

Some additional information has been added to the Python license graphic (attached). 

 

Based on the new information, it appears that the stand alone CNRI license on opensource.org is ONLY for the licensing of the beta version of python 1.6.1.  Kate Stewart and I will confirm this with Python Legal.

License Meeting Minutes from today are available

Kim Weins
 

Hi Everyone

Minutes on license meeting are now available on the wiki at the link below.

We have a few remaining followups that are being chased down (per the minutes) and after that we will temporarily CLOSE adding of new licenses.  We need to focus on getting the license repo in place and getting license data loaded and reviewed.  Once that is done, we will define and document the process for adding new licenses to the list and re-open the list.  If you see any egregious items missing from the license list, please let us know ASAP.  Everything else will need to wait for the license repo to get in place — we’re estimating that will be about 8 weeks away.

Minutes from 2 Dec SPDX General Meeting and IMPORTANT notice

Philip Odence
 

IMPORTANT: We need interested folks to sign up for the respective mailing lists for the three teams (Technical, Business, Legal). In the next month or so, invitations to those teams' meetings will go only to the team lists. This general list will continue to be used to announce and circulate minutes for the General Meeting. If you need help see the memo from Martin I copied below. Or let me know if you have questions.


Thanks,
Phil



FROM MARTIN M:


As Phil mentioned during the last SPDX call, we added a number of
mailing lists to facilitate discussions of specific areas.  This list
(spdx@...) will continue to be used for general discussions
but discussions about specific topics (technical development of the
spec; rollout and other business aspects; and legal aspects) will take
place on the other mailing lists.  If you want to participate in the
technical, business or legal team discussions, you therefore have to
subscribe to their mailing lists.

You can find a link to the mailing lists on each team wiki page:




Follow the link to the mailing list and on the page for the mailing list
search for "Subscribing to".  Enter your email address, name (optional)
and password and click on "Subscribe".  You will then get an email with
a link that you have to follow in order to confirm their subscription.

Mailing list archives are also available so you can check if you missed

We will continue to work on license list issues.

older license versions that are missing:
-         we don’t have EUPL v1.0, MPL v1.0, NPL v1.0, other OSL versions,
AFL, etc.


license-specific issues:
-         X.Net License à this is really an LGPL notice + special exception
- should we have it as a separate license?
-         Zlib/libpng License à note: this is the zlib license, but OSI
calls it the zlib/libpng license.  Yet there is a different license for
libpng:  see http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/src/libpng-LICENSE.txt

Python History and License

Tom Incorvia
 

Regarding the Python licensing,

 

Kim is correct.  http://python.org/psf/summary/ clearly states that the PSF Python releases are licensed under the stack of licenses.  So my statement regarding a particular PSF version being licensed under one and only one license is incorrect for the PSF-related licenses – it is the stack.   

 

If we can get a statement from the PSF saying that the stack license applies regardless of version (even the old CWI versions), then we will only need the stack-license (although it has a “pick whatever applies to your release” nature that is a bit different than what we have been doing).  This is a bit different than the Mozilla tri-license where the end user picks . . .

 

The alternative to listing the stack-license would be to have PSF say on a version by version basis when a stack / stack-subset / individual license applies.  Messy – that is the route that I was taking.

newly uploaded license list

Jilayne Lovejoy <Jlovejoy@...>
 

Hi All,

 

I have uploaded a new version of the License List (v1.3) in spreadsheet format to the Wiki page, as well as accompanying guidelines document (remaining outstanding questions highlighted in yellow there).  As per last week’s license meeting, I made the following changes:

  1. fix header for “GPL v3 only”
  2. add “GPL v3 or later”
  3. added GPL exceptions (see list below with) 
    1. I did not add headers for these.  Sometimes the header has the exception and sometimes it is located at the bottom of the license (or both), so it didn’t seem like there is an “official header” in this situation, unless we just use the standard GPL headers.
    2. I have hidden the “exceptions” column for now in the spreadsheet.  Now that we are adding each exception as a separate line item, this field seemed NA – thoughts?
    3. We decided we would only list the “official” GPL exceptions.  I’m not sure we discussed what constitutes “official,” but the GNU website only lists 2 – Autoconf and GCC Runtime Library - (see http://www.gnu.org/licenses/exceptions.html) on their website, yet I’m pretty sure that the others we mentioned on the call (Bison, Font, Classpath) should be included as well.  So, for going forward, we’ll need to determine some kind of protocol to decide a) what makes the cut for out list for exceptions and b) have we missed any?

 

Exceptions added:

- GPL v2 w/Autoconf exception – I could not find a link to this.  The GNU website only has the v3 exception, but there was one for v2.  I even tried downloading an old version of Autoconf and the COPYING.txt file (which is supposed to have the exception included in it…) did not have the exception.  Please check to see the text I did find is correct

- GPL v2 w/Bison exception

- GPL v2 w/Classpath exception

- GPL v2 w/GCC Runtime Library exception – I could not find a link to this.  GNU website only have v3 exception.  Please check if this text is correct…

 

- GPL v3 w/Autoconf exception

- GPL v3 w/GCC Runtime Library Exception – the GNU website has a v3.0 and v3.1 of this exception – the most recent one is included here.  I could not find

 

If there is another exception you want added, can you please email me the name of it and a url for where you found the text.

 

Thanks,
