Ibrahim joined for the first time. He is in charge of technical and legal initiatives for the Linux Foundation and taken on the role of LF project coordinator for SPDX. He should be a big help.


Business Team Report

The panel discussion for LinuxCon will be lead by Scott and will include Kate, Jilayne and Jack representing respective teams. He's also recruited Matt Germonprez from U Nebraska to talk about his FOSSology/SPDX work.

Scott is working with LF on a press release about V1.1 to be released at LinuxCon.


Tech Team

Still working 2.0 use cases and trying to wrap up 1.1.

Face to Face will continue use case discussion.


Legal Team 

There has been discussion about how to recruit companies to get involved. And there's a sense that companies are concerned about commitment required to be involved with SPDX.



Plan was to cut over to new site as of the 28th (and it was subsequently executed).
