Build Status standard-readme compliant reuse compliant

We're working to make managing copyrights and licenses in free and open source software easier. This is the website for a guide of best practices, meant to demonstrate how to add copyright and license information to a project in ways which allow for more automation.


There's no installation here, but you may try running hugo in the site/ directory to generate the website when testing locally. Typically, we let our Drone CI build and deploy the website for us.


Go to and enjoy :-) If your project follows the reuse guidelines, we encourage you to show that in your and similar! Just copy this badge into your readme:
