FOSSology and FOSSBazaar

The FOSSBazaar community site and the FOSSology project are now being hosted at the Open Source Lab.

FOSSBazaar provides information regarding many topics involving Open Source Software including IP issues, Licensing, Security, Support options, and much more. The site aims to provide a gathering place to discuss, explore, share experiences, and cooperatively solve issues related to FOSS governance.

The FOSSology project analyzes source code to quickly report on what licenses are being used by a certain project. It can be extended to scan and analyze other data inside of source code such as code re-use, security alerts and bug fixes. The OSUOSL is hosting the FOSSology web site and email as well as a local installation of the FOSSology software.
