The European OpenSource & Free Software Law Event (EOLE) is an event that aims to promote the sharing and dissemination of legal knowledge on Free & Open Source Software (FOSS) licences, as well as the development and promotion of good practices in the field. Given the scientific orientation of the conference, a particular attention is paid to the delivery of qualitative information on a neutral and non-partisan basis.
The QualiPSO consortium supports this event and will held a presentation during the conference on Legal issues & FOSS promotion in the EU.
Qualipso was present in the 10th International FLOSS Forum in Porto Alegre, Brazil, one of the largest free and open source event in the world with the presence of almost 10 thousand people. The event was held from June 24 to 27, 2009 and was visited by important members from the international FLOSS community, coming from governments, corporations, and FLOSS projects; this included Brazilian president, Lula, who visited the event and gave a speech.
Forges are Web environments providing distributed and collaborative software development tools.
Historically, free forges have been widely known thanks to SourceForge then Gforge platforms. Today, a huge number of projects use forges, either for free/open source software or enterprise software development. There are currently a number of free forge initiatives, like Trac, LibreSource, Codendi, Novaforge, Picoforge, Savane, ACOS, ... Some of them are derived from SourceForge or Gforge, others are specific implementations.
The objective of the meeting is to allow forge users and forge providers to meet themselves and to identify common needs, technical issues and discuss alternative solutions. The objective is then to ease standardisation and exchanges between different forges, according to the real needs defined by the users.
