Open Source Licensing Across Package Dependencies

Maria Kechagia, Diomidis Spinellis, Stephanos Androutsellis-Theotokis
2010 2010 14th Panhellenic Conference on Informatics  
Licensing dependencies among open source software (oss) packages reveal a lot about software compatibility relationships and the practicalities of oss licensing.  ...  In this paper, we discuss various aspects of oss licensing, and we present an empirical study on FreeBSD ports collections concerning their licensing dependencies, in an attempt to identify specific patterns  ...  Licenses across Dependencies The second question we aimed to answer was whether licenses across dependencies follow an order associated with the permissiveness of each license.  ...
