Linux Foundation Releases Self-Assessment Checklist

The Linux Foundation has published a “Self-AssessmentChecklist” for businesses using open source software.  The document is available here (but requires entering personal information to initiate the download).  It covers issues such as due diligence review, audits, training, and compliance staffing.  The checklist uses no scoring mechanism; it is meant to spark discussion and candid self-assessment within an organization.  It is intended to be used in conjunction with the Linux Foundation’s training materials described at http://www.linuxfoundation.org/programs/legal/compliance/training-and-education.  The checklist is licensed under the CC by 3.0 license.
