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.

The FOSSology project site is in the process of being rebuilt, organized and cleaned up. Tell us what you think at . All comments & suggestions are welcome.

Please see the Contact Us page to subscribe to our mailing lists and/or join our irc channel.

Want to try out FOSSology? Try the demo server at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO):
or their server with their SPDX module installed:
UNO maintains the SPDX project at https://github.com/spdx-tools/fossology-spdx

Packages for download are available from http://www.fossology.org/releases/. Or, you can grab the source tarball from http://sourceforge.net/projects/fossology/files/fossology/.
