Image Licence Analysis

Registered by David Zinman on 2012-02-15

Concerns of various companies about the use of some licenses (GPL-3 in particular) means that they wish to know which licenses make up each of our deliverables. For Ubuntu-based images and hardware packs this is fairly tricky. We wish to have an automated process that identifies the licenses that are part of the images, and can detect changes.

OEM have something along these lines.
