Overview

Advancing open source analysis

Our mission is to build a community to facilitate the study of Free and Open Source Software by providing free and open source data analysis tools. However, we have evolved to be a set of tools to assist in open source governance. Today, the predominant use of FOSSology is scanning files for licenses and copyrights.

Please see the Contact Us page to subscribe to our mailing lists and/or join our irc channel. If you register you can also use the Forum on fossology.org.
