OSS Governance Initiative


Most large end-users and systems integrators already use FOSS either in their information systems or in their product and service divisions. Open source compliance has become an ever growing concern and many large companies have named compliance officers. 

However, while sanitizing a company’s open source production chain – which is what compliance is about – is fundamental, it is essential that users give back to communities and contribute to the open source ecosystem. This takes compliance to the next level, and this is what open source governance is about. 

And in this area, especially in Europe, everyone is still learning and innovating, with nobody knowing where they really stand regarding the state of the art in the domain. 

License Compliance

License compliance is already pretty well covered.
