By its nature, the availability of FOSS has given computer scientists a large body of software and software projects to analyze. By having available source, version control system metadata, and open project communities, much can be learned about a software project, software development and collaborative project development. The goal of the FOSSology project is to create a public, open source software repository, together with tools to facilitate analysis, storage, and sharing of open source software and its metadata. FOSSology does license detection today.
