Compliance as a Community Effort: Engaging Contributors and Users

In the Free and Open Source world, compliance often gets a reputation as a complex, back-end process, seemingly distant from the daily workflow of developers and contributors. However, in this talk, we’ll explore how compliance is not just a legal necessity but a communal responsibility that can significantly enhance open-source projects' trust, sustainability, and success.

We will delve into the idea that compliance should be a collective effort seamlessly integrated into the fabric of the open-source community. By engaging the core developers, occasional contributors, and end-users, compliance becomes an inclusive, transparent process that upholds the spirit of open collaboration and innovation.
