Webinar: An Update On ClearlyDefined

By 2023-04-26March 14th, 2024automation, community, licensing, News, Webinar

This webinar features an update on ClearlyDefined by Nick Vidal at the Open Source Initiative (OSI). A lot has happened since we last covered this project for open source metadata, including the move to a new home at OSI.

About The Project

ClearlyDefined and its parent organization, the Open Source Initiative, are on a mission to help FOSS projects thrive by being clearly defined. Lack of clarity around licenses and security vulnerabilities reduces engagement – that means fewer users, fewer contributors and a smaller community.

As such, the goals of the project are to:

  • Raise awareness about this challenge within FOSS project teams
  • Automatically harvest data from projects
  • Make it easy for anyone to contribute missing information
  • Crowd-source the curation of these contributions
  • Feed curated contributions back to the original projects
