Today FOSS(free and open source software) is everywhere, many projects are built using OSS(open source software) components. In collaborative project development environments, it is necessary to get an insight of what kind of licenses are used in a software package. The goal of FOSSology is to provide open source license compliance software: A user can upload individual files or entire software packages/distributions. FOSSology will unpack this upload and run a chosen set of analysis tools on every file in the upload.

FOSSology project is being actively developed. This presentation introduces recent features of the software: Import of SPDX documents, editing the data and then generation of an updated SPDX document. The SPDX import enhancements have resulted in a completely new implementation of copyright statement handling. Moreover, FOSSology has added support for maintaining customizable license obligations and can generate these summarized by involved licenses in a detailed analysis report.
