Artifacts (TODO)

Updated 2024-07-05

An artifact is an instance of a component, and components comes in four flavours:

  1. Single component, usually a collection of files in a repository (MAIA only).
  2. Collection component, a software component that encapsulates a group of related components aggregating information from other components (MAIA only).
  3. External component, any component registered in MAIA or SBOMC, not controlled by a repository manager.
  4. External collection component, aggregating information from a collection of other external components.
