I want you to help answer licensing questions

The Compliance Lab could use a few good volunteers.

The Compliance Lab does do one job which is very public: we answer licensing questions from the free software community. When people want to learn how they can mix code under different terms, or what license would be best for their program, we try to help them so they can spend less time worrying about legal nitty-gritty and more time hacking. It's not the most glamorous job, but it's a unique way to help out.

With the recent staff changes, though, we've had a hard time answering all the questions we get, so we're looking for new volunteers. Your help could make a huge difference, even with just a few hours a week. If you'd like to contribute, try your hand at our license quiz, and let us know how you do at
