SPDX: Debunking the myths and misunderstandings

The SPDX specification is a standard format for communicating the components, licenses, and copyrights associated with a software package.

This talk will address some of the commonly heard myths and misunderstandings.

This talk will also describe the key changes accompanying the upcoming official release of SPDX 2.0.
