This session will present the project initiated by HP around Open Source Governance:
FOSSology (http://fossology.org ), an open source compliance tool helping in the evaluation of Open Source licenses and copyrigths really used in projects by doing code analysis, and pattern matching searches in it and reporting what had been found.
Every file submitted to the FOSSology system is saved in a file repository, scanned, and results are stored in a database. A web user interface displays results while the database and file repository remain for future scans and data mining.
The presentation will cover the major features of the tool, the latest news of the 2.0.x version, as well as the roadmap for 2.x
Audience are Managers, Solution Architects, FLOSS compliance officers, Distribution makers, Sofware producers interested by compliance to FLOSS licences.
