Cross Functional Issues – Phil
- Great Presentation from Bruno Grasset
- He opened and closed with thanks to everyone involved with SPDX for providing something so useful to the industry
- Supplier to Automotive Industry- Autonomous Cars, Connected Car, Intuitive Control
- Middle of complex supply chain
- Why they think SPDX is important
- Industry is “likes” standards, procedures, rules
- Have an explicit program to ensure respecting licenses and meeting obligations in all products
- Bruno is in charge of OSS compliance
- How they use
- License List
- Internal policy started with the SPDX list
- They use the SPDX license IDs in all of their documents and databases (including promoting publicly)
- And they check any licenses anyone supplies against our standard text
- Document Spec
- Prototyped use internally
- Have been looking for hierarchy, so 2.0 is important; evaluating in 2015
- Future Intent
- Large OEMs (car companies) are starting to require
- Customer requirements are making this a priority in 2015
- Will need to require from their own suppliers
- Integration with Yocto is critical
- Aiming for chain of trust, based on SPDX
- When you evaluated SPDX, any features beyond hierarchy that they require?
- Not yet mature enough to completely evaluate
- How did you hear of? How can we promote?
- LinuxCon Europe session- Bruno came then promoted internally.
- He expects that in his space that SPDX will catch on quickly because of car makers requirements
- SPDX and Yocto- Is there only interest in Yocto integration or more general integration?
- Broader interest in integrating into process
General Status - Phil
- On track for 2.0 release at CollabSummit
- Jack has been working hard to get a good agenda together
- We will be sharing a room with OpenChain so that folks can participate in both
- Looking forward to seeing everyone
