Open Source Package Licenses


Open source software licenses govern how others – besides the originator – can use, modify, or distribute software code. They grant other users the permission and rights to use or repurpose the code for new applications or to include the code in other projects.

Selecting an open source license type depends largely on the intention of the licensor or developer for use of the software.

Our OOTB policy considers All approved OSI licenses as compliant (, and can be modified by the user to add or remove license types from the license whitelist, to match his compliance and legal needs best and alert when they are violated
Unknown licenses will be considered as violating as there limitations are unknown as well
