LVC21F-105 CI/CD/CC: open source compliance integrated in development.

Session Abstract

Level: Intermediate  Compliance with copyright can be a nightmare, especially if the project faces it late in development. Everybody is now figuring out how to use tools and how this could help. We have been tasked with ensuring compliance of an **entire operating system**, something that would take months/man if not years. The gold standard is today to integrate compliance in CI/CD. We present our solutions, particularly directed at Yocto/Bitbake projects.
