The Linux Foundation Collaboration Project FOSSology is an OSS framework and Web application mostly used to identify licenses and copyrights in OSS components. FOSSology involves different scan approaches and with a streamlined UI, it allows for efficient assessment of scanner findings. The output is a clarification of involved licenses in OSS components. The tutorial will show and explain: * How does the license situation of open source software look like? * What does FOSSology find actually? * How to generate results with FOSSology for SPDX and debian-copyright files? * How to do reuse of already analyzed components when scanning a newer version? * How can I handle new license statements? * HD? FOSSology enables identification of licenses at a high precision level - the tutorial explains the pitfalls of license statement interpretation and how to cover that.
