Complying with license obligations can incur a lot of hurdles. This results in developers skipping compliance or failing to achieve correct compliance. To compound this, package authors sometimes fail to describe the license of their package clearly or omit license information of included files. ClearlyDefined is a community curated repository of discovered license information for Crates packages, among other types. This talk will cover: the importance of the license obligations of the ...

Rust is a language with a healthy ecosystem and a strong developer base. With built-in dependency management it's easy to build and install new programs even for those who have never used the language. But how is its adoption among Linux distros? Come with me as we figure out how best to package rust libraries and binaries in Linux distributions which demand total control over dependency management.
