Minutes of Nov SPDX General Meeting


Kate Stewart
 

Hi Phil,
     Couple of comments on the Prague section,  added them inline, but that's probably
not clear - so can you substitute the following in the minutes?

Prague
  • SPDX Open Source Tools Session
    • MarkG demoed sparts as part of Intel booth,  and illustrated how Hyperledger with SPDX can be used in supply chain 
    • Thomas Steenbergen announced open source review toolkit (ORT) and provided overview of ScanCode
    • Michael Jaeger reviewed how SW360 and new release of FOSSology can be used to work with SPDX
    • source{d} discussed proposal they're working on to apply machine learning to license recognition. 
    • Kate overviewed the SPDX tools repository and some of the newer additions by GSoC students as well as the test suite.
  • Kate did a talk on "automating license compliance - filling in the missing pieces" - more info at http://sched.co/BxI3.    
    • Lots of developer interest in this topic now.
  • FOSSology Hands-on training had section on SPDX documents, that she presented.

Thanks,   Kate
