Source Code

The source code for the OSCAd software is available on Github.

However, unless you are interested in exactly the version of OSCAd running on, we recommend using the version from the repository of Amadeus IT Group instead.


The Open Source Compliance Advisor is intended to be developed in collaboration with the Open Source Community. The task lists presented by the OSCAd strictly follow the Open Source License Compendium .

This OSLiC was presented on the European Legal and Licensing Workshop 2013 in Amsterdam. It was very welcomed. But the very benevolent feedback of this meeting also expressed the need to have an interactive version of the OSLiC instead of being thrown back to the slightly unwieldy pdf version. The OSCAd seizes this idea. Initially, the OSCAd was developed by some employees of Deutsche Telekom AG.

This version here is a complete rewrite initiated and sponsored by Amadeus Germany GmbH. The new version is designed to fulfill requirements by Amadeus which the old version could not.
