Community SUmmit: Legal & Licensing / Tools for developers to ensure legal integrity of their code / Freddy Munoz and Bruno Cornec


Published on

First this talk explores the various options regarding FOSS detection, how this process can be integrated in the "software factory", and how the results can be displayed in a usable and efficient way, using different tools freely available to the open source communities like FOSSology and Antepedia Tools Suite. Secondly, we will give some example of license data that can be collected from many open source projects and show how it can be useful for communities to adopt standard like SPDX (Software Package Data Exchange), which will be presented briefly.

FOSSology - GoalFOSS-ology : The study of FOSSThe goal of the FOSSology project is createtools and a framework to reduce fear,uncertainty, and doubt in the use,development, and distribution of open sourcesoftware.FOSSology is a static analysis framework tolearn what we can by scanning FOSS itself.Analyze the code, save the results in adatabase, report results through a Web (orscripted) interface.
