Not necessarily; it should be treated a different access rights: - user X can modify the catalog - user Y can modify complex component A - user Z can modify complex component B > I ask this because in case a > complex component is to be added, it may have a relationship to a simple > component that is not yet included in the catalog. yes, that's correct. in the above example, user Y may not be able to complete his work until user X has updated the catalog of simple components. that's understandable -- and expected. in real-life situations, modifying the catalog would be done by a dedicated team, and might involve other (external) processes beforehand. > 2.

CLIO should be able to store (and reproduce) this file. it is *not* expected to process the file (for example, to extract the list of filenames, as you say). this is definitely extra work which I fear will raise the complexity of the whole project, so let's stay with simply handling the SPDX info as a black box. -- -- zvr -- -- +---------------------------+ Alexios Zavras (-zvr-) | H eytyxia den exei enoxes | zvr [ at ] zvr [ dot ] gr +-----------------------zvr-+
