1) discuss how we want summary table structured - see
proposals in link above,  any others?
approach propose by Callaway was felt reasonable.
We'll go with the embedded version in the name varient for now, and adjust later unless someone feels very strongly.

2) check there is concensus on the 1 page per license on
SPDX approach,  if not, who has alternate proposals.
seems to be ok, but revisit after RDF figured out a bit more to make sure can handle. Discuss with wider audience a bit.

3) volunteers to help with pulling the license list
together in form above (based on what's in Appendix I today,
and mail list input)?   Then translate into
the forms decided above. 

(we may want to defer the following until wider audience
has chance to participate)

4) logistics - process for accepting new license into
list,  pre 1.0 freeze, and then post.

5) what to carry in the SPDX spec,  and what to carry
on the web site?

anything else to add?
