Analyzing OSS license compliance requires expert knowledge. The use of the FOSSology software requires understanding of license analysis problems and how they are covered by FOSSology. This training will provide the following elements:

* Challenges in real world examples at license analysis of open source components

* Learning how to cope with license proliferation and custom license texts

* Efficiently managing large open source components with heterogeneous licensing

* Saving work with reusing license conclusions of open source packages when analyzing a newer version

* An example workflow for component analysis with FOSSology

This session encourages for performing the presented functionality at the same time. Attendees use their computers to perform presented tasks on their own FOSSology. As an open source project, anyone can install FOSSology using a pre-built docker image or virtualbox on most platforms.
