InnerSource License Generator Working Group

The InnerSource SIG is actively developing a tool that can be used to generate InnerSource Licenses. This work is in progress in FINOS Labs and you are welcome to join the development effort InnerSource License Generator - Github


  1. Fork the GitHub repo
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b feature/fooBar)
  3. Read our contribution guidelines and Community Code of Conduct
  4. Make your changes on the fork. Ensure any documentation and code changes are formatted correctly by executing npm run fmt (see below for setup instructions). If npm run fmt isn't executed, the build will fail.
  5. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some fooBar')
  6. Push to the branch (git push origin feature/fooBar)
  7. Create a new Pull Request

NOTE: Commits and pull requests to FINOS repositories will only be accepted from those contributors with an active, executed Individual Contributor License Agreement (ICLA) with FINOS OR who are covered under an existing and active Corporate Contribution License Agreement (CCLA) executed with FINOS. Commits from individuals not covered under an ICLA or CCLA will be flagged and blocked by the FINOS Clabot tool. Please note that some CCLAs require individuals/employees to be explicitly named on the CCLA.

Workstation Setup

To ensure a smooth contributing experience, please ensure you follow the workstation setup. This project makes use of Prettier to format all Markdown documentation to ensure consistency across the whole repository. Prettier is built on Node.js, which will need to be installed. To ensure your document changes are formatted correctly, follow these steps:

  1. Install the latest LTS Node.js either by downloading an installer, using a package manager like Homebrew (brew install node@16 as of this writing), or a version manager like nvm or asdf.
  2. npm install - NPM now ships with every Node.js installation.
  3. npm run fmt - this executes the formatting script.
