I've created a task do_create_spdx that gets some data from packages

For the most part everything works as expected, but for some packages
do_create_spdx does not complete in time for the combination step in
Is there a way for me force do_image_complete to wait for
do_create_spdx to have been completed for all packages?
This seems a little odd since image.bbclass has:

do_rootfs[recrdeptask] += "do_packagedata"

which means do_rootfs should only happen after all do_packagedata have run.
Your task is added before do_packagedata.
do_image and do_image_complete should run after do_rootfs.

I'm wondering if the issue is more to do with reuse of previous build artefacts
where sstate is involved. Does your added task account for sstate?
That is odd indeed. I need to give it another go. As for accounting for sstate, no, at least not intentionally.

I've been giving some thought to SDPX and SBOM during our build process so I
am curious what you're doing, is the work public anywhere?
Public at https://github.com/doubleopen-project/meta-doubleopen. The usual disclaimers about PoC-level spaghetti apply; all questions and comments very much appreciated! 😊
