Ensuring Open Source license compliance should be simple. After all, participants in Open Source processes intent to share their creations freely and trust that others do the same. Reality however is not so simple. Software changes quickly, supply chains are messy, and product dependencies are complex. Even without ignorance or malignancy at play, consistently fulfilling all Open Source license requirements is difficult. Surprisingly, no Open Source tools have yet emerged as de-facto standards for managing Open Source license compliance across the supply chain. The presentation reviews what is required of compliance tooling needs to fill this gap, and how existing tooling measures up against that. It aims at encouraging the development of Open Source license compliance tooling that has the potential to become a de-facto standard. Let us make Open Source license compliance simple again!
