14:30 - How to implement GGI in your own organization with "MYGGI Board"

A new version 1.1 of the Good Governance Initiative (GGI) Handbook is out, and we also improved the "My GGI Board" tools.
This tool lets you create within minutes, inside a GitLab repository, an environment to help you get started.
A simple script creates a GitLab Issues Bord representing all GGI Goals and activities - you can then select the Activities you work on, define you objectives and track your progress. A static website, generated via GitLab Pages, gives an overview of your progress, for your to share with the rest of the world.
You can find it here: In this session, we will see how to get started with the "My GGI Board" - it will also be the opportunity to discuss the best approaches to really, and concretely, make the most out of the GGI Handbook framework.

Speakers: Nicolas Toussaint, Orange.

16:10 - Automate legal compliance with Hermine

Hermine is a new tool in the open source compliance tooling ecosystem.
It allows you to manage and implement your Open Source Legal Compliance Policy.
It facilitates collaboration inside organisations between lawyers, developers and product owners, as well as between legal teams of different organisations.
Organised as an open community, the project also proposes a novel and unique way to collaborate and standardise the understanding and possible interpretations of the open source licences.

In this workshop, we will go into details to explain and discuss the needs and challenges behind open source policies automation, as well as about the necessity to collaborate openly to propose a way to standardise the approach.
We will demonstrate how Hermine works, by configuring and applying a simple open source policy to an imported SBoM. We will see how each component is validated (or not), and the associated resulting list of obligations to be respected.

Speakers: Benjamin Jean, Camille Moulin, Céline Fontaine, Nicolas Toussaint
