Many actors gradually establish good practices relying on international standardization processes, deployment of specific tools, or the design of standards. These good practices enable the organization to respect licences, but above all to fully benefit from free and open source software by focusing on its own added-value.
In this context, increasingly integrated in industrial processes of open source user and producer organizations, the conformity management has now acquired a strong maturity thanks to numerous international initiatives of standardization and automation. Resolutely turned towards this thematic, the edition 2018 has allowed to report the state of progress of these different works and to anticipate the next major evolution of the area.
The edition 2018 of EOLE, organized for the third consecutive year in partnership with the Paris Open Source Summit (POSS), was the opportunity to present these good practices by focusing on conformance processes in a time of mainstream open source.
