Last week Armijn and I donated the flowchart material from our book 'Practical GPL Compliance' to the OpenChain Project​. This week we donated the checklist material. Our goal is to help foster the donation, the development and the sharing of further knowledge that makes open source compliance in the supply chain easier for everyone.

Big day for OpenChain Project​ as our new Conformance Logo goes live at LinuxCon China. Kudos to The Linux Foundation​ and especially +Kate Stewart for helping to make this happen. Now it is even easier for every organization of any size to display their adherence to the industry standard for open source license compliance in the supply chain.

Kate has long been a pillar of the open source legal community through her contributions to projects like SPDX, OpenChain and the Linux Foundation Open Compliance Program. She is a frequent participant at events throughout the world and acts as a bridge between many stakeholders to help share knowledge around everything from tooling to processes. She is also a great person to work with and is one of the most approachable figures in our field.

“When open source began there were questions about how the licenses worked and whether this collaborative method could scale,” says Shane Coughlan. “In two decades we have come so far. Open source is now the foundation of the global IT industry and we have matured beyond code. We have collaborated to build great technology, great projects and great approaches to managing our activities. My talk at LinuxCon China will focus on the latter item, a key tipping point for maturity, and an area where projects like OpenChain showcase our progress as a community.”
