How to adjust your lifecycle tool to match my employer's policies

My employer told me to help my colleagues get heir OSS licenses in shape. To do that, I need to understand your tool. The OSI explains the differences between various licenses quite well. I need to know how to tweak your tool settings to match policies set On High. When I missed a question you didn't tell me which or how I got it wrong. I would rather read than attend to a talking head.

Great foundation on a topic that most developers don't really understand but should.

I have a much better understanding of the difference between open source licenses and the risk they can pose to companies who do not pay attention to what licenses might dwell in their applications.
