The Europe Local Chapter proposed new tools and services to the OW2 MO:

  • Webinar Tool: Dimdim
    Communicate around OW2 activities (New Members Welcome training, Project Presentation, Forge Training, Community Animation Training, etc.).
  • OSS License Audit Tool: HP Fossology,
    Help OW2 project managers & developers in their daily job when talking about OSS licences, compatibility, governance. This tool, plugged to a forge, audit the code base and provide list of licenses used.
  • OSS License Checker Tool: Open Source License Checker,
    Java stand alone program that audit a code and provide licenses conflicts. Very easy to install, interesting tool.
