The FOSS licensing and security information landscape is vast and varied. Projects without clear metadata are harder to adopt and so get fewer contributions and lower engagement -- they enjoy less success. On the consumer side, enormous effort is required to discover, comply with licensing obligations, and track security issues. Even simple things like the location of the source for a component can be painful to find.

Come see how it works and how you can participate.
