OpenChain Project featured at Linux Foundation Legal Summit

SAN FRANCISCO, United States, December 4, 2017 — The OpenChain Project will be featured at the Linux Foundation Legal Summit on the 5th of December. The talk, entitled ‘Update on OpenChain’, will provide an overview and context for how the OpenChain Project will position itself entering 2018. A version of this talk from the SFLC Fall Conference can be viewed here:

“I am delighted to share the latest news from the OpenChain Project as we reach the end of the year,” says Shane Coughlan, OpenChain Project Director. “We have been positioning the project for growth in 2018 and, whether viewed from the perspective of onboarding material, translations or expanded core material, our community of volunteers has been fantastic.”

The OpenChain Project identifies key recommended processes for effective open source management. The project builds trust in open source by making open source license compliance simpler and more consistent.

The OpenChain Specification defines a core set of requirements every quality compliance program must satisfy. The OpenChain Curriculum provides the educational foundation for open source processes and solutions, whilst meeting a key requirement of the OpenChain Specification. OpenChain Conformance allows organizations to display their adherence to these requirements.

The result is that open source license compliance becomes more predictable, understandable and efficient for participants of the software supply chain.

Organizations of all sizes are invited to review the OpenChain Project, to complete our free Online Self-Certification Questionnaire, and to join our community of trust.
