Special SPDX Talk Next Week

Phil Odence

For our SPDX General Meeting call next week we will have a presentation from Gary O’Neall and Steve Winslow called:

SPDX: Bridging the Compliance Tool Gap

Any organization which utilizes open source software needs to comply with the open source license terms and the specific security policies of their industry.  To satisfy the basic requirement of knowing the specific open source packages included in the software, several tools have been produced which create or manage a software “Bill of Materials”.  The Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) defines a standard format for a Bill of Materials which can facilitate harmonious integration of multiple tools.


This is a reprise of a very well-received talk they gave at the LF Open Source Leadership Summit earlier this month. I will send out the normal General Meeting reminder, however I wanted to mention this earlier because you might want to share with others. If you have colleagues, friends or partners that would like to learn SPDX, this would be great 30 minute intro. Please invite them.
