Why is Black Duck making Open Hub data more available?

We’re eager to contribute our storehouse of analytical intelligence on the FOSS ecosystem back to the community. We can’t predict all the ways this data will be used, but we feel confident that similar to the use of FOSS-licensed source code, the results will be innovative and exciting! With this initiative, we want to help communities, foundations, projects, individual developers, corporate contributors, and the broader software industry leverage the FOSS development model. We believe that Open Hub data, freely licensed, can help everyone in the ecosystem better understand how they’re engaging with FOSS, how the open source model works in practice, and leverage that understanding into more and better code.
