Linux Foundation’s CII Now Assessing Open-Source Project Risk

“What’s new is that the Census Project quickly automates the collection and analysis of data on different open-source projects and ultimately creates a risk score for each project based on the results,” Ratliff told eWEEK. “The goal is that this program will expedite CII’s decision-making around grant proposals, ensuring funds are delivered as fast as possible to the software most in need.”

Ratliff herself only recently took on a leadership role in CII as a dedicated resource helping to guide the effort forward.
